Fascination of Plants Day in Canada

The event was held on May 16, 2013 at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga, Ontario. This high school outreach celebrated the beauty and fascinating world of plant cells at the microscopic level through an image exhibition followed by the multimedia presentation ‘Cellscapes: The Art and Science behind Plant Cell Biotechnology and Imaging’ by Professor Jaideep Mathur and his Laboratory of Plant Development and Interactions from the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Guelph. Teacher Eva Bruni and the Science Department at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School were instrumental in hosting the event which was very well received by students and teachers alike. The hundred or so science students in attendance had very good questions following the presentation, regarding both scientific details as well as study and career opportunities in plant sciences.
