Atiya Hussain
Parent of 1st year student at U. of O.

14 November 2006


I am a parent of a first year Ottawa U student. I had the pleasure of attending one of the lectures that constitutes Science 1101 (Activism Course). I greatly benefited from this, and I am looking forward to the course being offered in the following years, so that others may also benefit from it.

More than ever before there is a need for courses such as SCI 1101.
Science is at the fore front of both the environmental crises as well as its solutions. Science itself being without a conscience, it is the scientists who who have to act as its conscience. For this reason Sci 1101 is essential and I hope that the department will continue offering this, and hopefully other courses similar to this.

Best regards

Atiya Hussain
