Welcome to Science Camp!

This week, August 10-17, we are thrilled to host the AANDC National First Nations and Inuit Science Camp.

Day 3 of camp includes a visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

Every year, about 45 students from First Nations and Inuit communities across Canada gather for one week in August to engage in science activities, explore science programs and careers, and network with other like-minded youth from across the country. This event is in its 14th year and the last time MFNERC hosted it was in 2012. We are excited to have the chance to do it again and show off our province. Students will explore all kinds of topics including astronomy, microbiology, medical research, engineering and traditional First Nations medicine. They will also visit a variety of sites including Whiteshell Provincial Park and Oak Hammock Marsh, and take part in some social events like Folklorama.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Winnipeg, and hope that every student has an enjoyable and memorable week filled with exciting science experiences and the making of lasting friendships.
