Cafe Scientifique: "Should Science Shape the Modern Athlete?"
I will be taking part in a Cafe Scientifique panel hosted by the Ontario Science Centre on Saturday September 20.
Should Science Shape the Modern Athlete?
Are today's athletes a delicate combination of nutritional supplements, steroids, sports psychologists, interval training routines and technological advances? Have we lost sight of the meaning of athletics, or are we finally focusing on our human potential for achievement by using technology, biology, materials science, and engineering to our advantage?
Join experts and other inquiring minds for drinks, discussion and debate.
