Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math? Curiosity on Stage is a series of short, interactive presentations that brings you face-to-face with researchers and innovators. Each week, a featured speaker delivers an engaging presentation followed by an interactive Q-and-A session. Curiosity on Stage invites you to learn directly from people working in the science and technology-related fields. Find out what they do and why it matters – and leave inspired by their stories of curiosity, overcoming obstacles, and innovation.

While everyone is welcome on the Demo Stage, this program is recommended for ages 10+.

This week: Following and Finding Fish: An Intro to Telemetry Tracking

Andrea Reid, Carleton University

Andrea Reid is a fish biologist, diver, and conservationist. Her research blends many kinds of science to study stressed-out fish around the world: East Africa; Southeast Asia; Oceania; and the Pacific Northwest. She strives to engage Indigenous community members as active participants in the research process and is herself a member of the northern, coastal Nisga’a Nation. Andrea is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fellow of The Explorers Club, a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Aboriginal Ambassador, and the 2019 Partners in Research Young Researcher Ambassador. Andrea loves sharing her passion for fish and the water with the public, and especially youth through science camps and river expeditions.

This week, Andrea will be talking about telemetry tracking. Telemetry tracking is a technique used by fish/fisheries biologists to follow the journeys of fish underwater. In this talk, Andrea will be sharing her approach to fish tracking and share the basics with the audience through demonstrations and games.
