Expo-Sci­ences this week­end

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Ev­ery year, many Estrie stu­dents take part in Expo-Sci­ences Hy­dro-Que­bec, a sci­en­tific competition dur­ing which they present projects that they are pas­sion­ate about. On the 18th, 19th and 20th of March, the pub­lic is in­vited to come and visit the Cen­tre cul­turel of the Université de Sher­brooke to take a trip into the world of science – you won’t be dis­ap­pointed!

Julie Levesque and My­lene Ouel­let are two stu­dents who are in­ter­ested in the ef­fects of mu­sic on liv­ing things. Did you know that mu­sic can in­flu­ence your brain and that it can have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on ill­nesses such as autism, Parkin­son’s and mi­graines? Mu­sic can also, in cer­tain cir­cum­stances, fa­cil­i­tate learn­ing or de­crease pain. A cer­tain kind of mu­sic can also kill plants and cook an egg…

To learn more about the science pro­ject of Julie and My­lene, and to see many other fas­ci­nat­ing projects, ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend this year’s competition.
