Science North is looking to expand its presence across Northwestern Ontario.This expansion will provide enhanced learning experiences and attractions across the region and includes permanent facilities in both Kenora and Thunder Bay.
This initiative is thanks to a Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. grant as well as funding from the city of Kenora. NOHFC is supporting the study with funding to hire seven interns to research, develop program enhancement and community-based assessment.
“An important priority of Science North’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan is to deliver science experiences to all of Northern Ontario,” Science North CEO Guy Labine stated. “Since 2010, Science North has engaged over 400,000 participants in the Northwest in informal science learning. Expanding Science North’s presence across Northwestern Ontario directly aligns with our mandate and strategic plan.”
Science North has provided science experiences for the past 30 years throughout Northern Ontario.
