Baltimore-Oriole-regEvery year millions of migratory birds make tremendous journeys across the globe. Biologists have long-wondered how birds and other migratory animals can travel such vast distances so precisely. Until recently their remarkable navigation skills have remained a mystery. On Monday, October 20th, Dr. Kelly Foyle will give a talk that explores new research by quantum biologists which has shown that birds are actually using quantum mechanics to make precise measurements of Earth's magnetic field in order to determine their path. She promises that we will also see that quantum physicists might have a thing or two to learn from birds!

The Bluewater Association for Lifelong Learning (BALL) is pleased to present this special lecture in cooperation with Waterloo, Ontario's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.

Dr. Kelly Foyle, one of Perimeter Institute's outreach scientists, received her doctorate from the University of Heidelberg in Germany while working at the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at McMaster University researching galaxies in the nearby Universe. She loves learning and sharing her passion for science. She is also an avid birder.

Math-regChesley, ON – The latest Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) results from the 2013 – 2014 Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics show that Bluewater District School Board students are exceeding the provincial average.
The most notable gains are in Grade 9 Applied Mathematics, where 51 percent of Bluewater students met or exceeded the provincial standard. This is 4 percent higher than the provincial average of 47 percent and also signals a dramatic increase of 13 percent for Bluewater in comparison to the previous year's score.
