Event description
At a time of year when we celebrate fear, join RCIScience to explore the science behind the scary!

About this Event

Jen Chan, PhD student at the University of Toronto Mississauga, shows us how stress and fear interact with our abilities to perform while in dangerous situations. Using physiological measurements like heart activity and stress hormones, Jen studies police officer’s mental health and their decision-making skills in the field.

Get up close with black widow spiders, as University of Toronto Mississauga PhD candidate Monica Mowery guides us through some cool spider behaviours - including web spinning, swimming and...ballooning?! She’ll even bring along some live specimens!
