Science Day at the CRPA!
Tuesday, May 28, 9:00 am–12:00 pm
For the first time, the CRPA conference will be hosting an outreach session targeting youth, entitled “Science Day at the CRPA!” Grade 6 students from l’École élémentaire catholique Saint-Viateur will learn about the fundamentals of radiation, learn about radon, participate in a radiation protection–themed scavenger hunt, and compare their neutron radiation exposure to that of David Saint-Jacques’ on the International Space Station. Please join us in welcoming our potential future radiation protection professionals!
