Bridging art and science

Science Literacy Week posters aim to illustrate and explain in a fun, colourful and simple way some of modern science's most interesting phenomenons linked to each year’s #SciLit theme.

Produced and curated by Microfiches in collaboration with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and theme-specific partners of each edition of Science Literacy Week, the downloadable posters feature illustrations and texts by some of Canada's most talented illustrators and science writers.
