SciSection

SciSection

SciSection is the #1 Science Show being produced from the center of Hamilton, in Ontario, Canada. SciSection aims to bridge the gap between individuals who may not be exposed to the same information as those studying sciences. Science is not just about chemical titrations or DNA transcription - nor is it only for that one character who wears an Einstein shirt in all those TV shows. From time to time we tend to forget that all the sciences are being studied for the betterment of us as a global population! So, we can learn and apply it to our day to day lives. We are here to remind you of that!
