The Business, Science & Technology Department of North York Central Library compiles a monthly calendar of free science and applied science events in Toronto. Applied science includes health, gardening, pets and food - all subjects found in the department's collections. Here is the March calendar (PDF).

March's highlights include:

Mar. 1. “There are no flying squirrels in Ontario” and other myths. A lecture on flying squirrels, a cryptic, nocturnal species with many interesting adaptations to their night time habits.

Mar. 4. Can Machines Be Flawed Enough to Be Human? A panel discussion that will examine our growing dependence on glitchy AI learning for business and culture.

Mar. 10. Honouring the Journey of Well-Being: Monthly Smudge and Sharing Circle. Participate in a smudge and sharing circle and learn from Elders, Knowledge Keepers or Traditional Healers.

The Toronto Public Library also offers many free science and applied science events:
