Get To Know Your Nose: The Science of Scent
Thu, October 20, 2016, 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Join UBC Okanagan chemistry professor Stephen McNeil to investigate the science of scent.
This workshop will offer participants, ages 16 and up, a noses-on experience to learn about the molecular basis for your sense of smell, and to explore how the chemical structure of molecules affect their odours.
Discover how your nose knows about the properties of molecules, compare the odours of pure substances to complex mixtures, and follow your nose through a range of flavour compounds and essential oils.
Registration is required. Tickets are $5.00 for general admission.
