September 26, 2017

On September 26th, NSERC brought together 30 of the top student winners of Science Fairs and competitions across Canada to celebrate their contributions to science and innovation on Parliament Hill. The day began with a student roundtable with the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, Parliamentary Secretary Kate Young and Dr. B. Mario Pinto, NSERC President. Following the roundtable, The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, and new Chief Science Advisor, Mona Nemer, personally recognized these young minds at the Office of the Prime Minister. This was a unique opportunity to celebrate Canada’s best and brightest youth in STEM and to engage and inspire other young Canadians across the country.
