Monday, July 31, 2017 3:31 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Government of Canada is investing $187,800 in Science North over the next three years to engage Northern Ontario Indigenous youth in science and technology.

Science North is among the recipients of funding through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)’s 2017 PromoScience Program.

This funding will allow Science North to bring hands-on science and technology experiences that are culturally relevant and meaningful to Indigenous audiences. The Outreach Programs engage children and youth in fun, interactive science-based activities. Through repeat visits, either in person or through video conferencing, Science North Scientists and the First Nations students and teachers can keep building on the science and technology experiences.
