Ask A Scientist: What's in Those Ships?

August 27, 2007

The big "lakers" and "salties" glide by on Lake Superior, but what's in them and how do their cargoes impact our region? On Wednesday, September 5, Minnesota Sea Grant's maritime extension educator, Dale Bergeron, will discuss Great Lakes shipping. This free "Ask a Scientist" discussion will focus on the people, products and stowaways floating in and out of the Great Lakes and will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. at Amazing Grace Café, 394 S Lake Ave., Duluth, Minn.

All ages are welcome. "Ask a Scientist" is inspired by the internationally successful Café Scientifique and backed by Nova scienceNOW. If you want to suggest a topic or speaker, or learn more about the free discussions, visit http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/news/aas. Eat, drink, talk science!
