If you consider yourself a bit of a “nerd” or just want to enjoy a free educational event, make sure you don’t miss out on Science Rendezvous this year!

Science Rendezvous is a unique event; it is the only national science festival hosted by 40 of Canada’s top institutions over a period of just one day. The goal? To reinvigorate the interest of Canadians (especially the youth) in the different fields of science and engineering. The event will attempt to accomplish that goal by covering a broad range of interesting topics, such as the chemistry of ice cream.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 11th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All of the many events taking place across Canada will be free of charge.

Many top scientists will be participating in this festival. They’ll be on hand to answer questions, give lab tours, and guide individuals of all ages through experiments. This event is a massive undertaking that involves over 6,000 volunteers, more than 4,000 of which are university-level science students.

Science Rendezvous is taking place in multiple locations across Canada; however, Toronto residents can enjoy activities from many great organizations, including:

  • Elephant Thoughts Global Development Initiatives
  • The Hospital for Sick Children
  • Let’s Talk Science
  • Mount Sinai Hospital
  • Ontario Genomics Institute
  • Ontario Science Centre
  • Ryerson University
  • Scientists in School
  • University of Ontario Institute of Technology
  • The University of Toronto
  • York University
