A Sneak Peek into Biological Science Studies

Posted by Zahra Mustansir on May 9, 2019 at 9:16 AM

Out of all the sciences, Biology is my favourite. Sadly, whenever I tell people I’m in Biological Science the only thing they can relate this to is med school.

Although, that is a career path for people in the Life Science specialization, it most definitely isn’t something that interests me. My interest lies in the environmental aspect.

Science Q&A: Ontario Tech University sends a weather balloon into space

Posted by Shelly Kowalski on June 25, 2015 at 2:43 PM

Science is really cool, there’s no denying that. What’s even cooler is the innovative science that has been happening right here on campus.

Last month, a team of Ontario Tech University physics students and professors from the Faculty of Science and the Physics Research Group set out to send a weather balloon into space. Think that’s crazy? Well, it’s apparently a thing – and such a big thing that there are teams from all across Canada with the sole intention to explore the edge of space with high altitude balloons. This project, organized for Science Rendezvous at Ontario Tech University on May 9, 2015, is part of a larger, Canada-wide High Altitude Balloon Experiment (HABEX).

The story starts on January 13, where a suspected homicide had occurred at Ontario Tech University’s Crime Scene House. For over a month, the Durham Regional Police Service had been looking into the matter. But that’s not all that happened. At 1900 hours on March 2, the DRPS discovered the lifeless body of their bloodstain pattern expert, Dr. D. Morgan, who was investigating the January 13 homicide. She was lying flat on the bed in the master bedroom. The initial examination of the scene concluded no signs of struggle, forced entry or foul play.  What happened here? It’s up to the forensic science students at Ontario Tech University to figure it out!
