Science Rendezvous at the University of Toronto (St. George Campus) will feature numerous exhibits that integrate science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and human ingenuity. This event offers visitors of all ages and backgrounds the chance to interact with world-class researchers, witness awe-inspiring demonstrations, partake in hands-on experiments and, above all, have fun while discovering science in a whole new way!
This year, the University of Toronto (St. George Campus) has a phenomenal festival in store to commemorate Canada’s 150th Birthday and Science Rendezvous’ 10th Anniversary. Come take a time-travelling journey through 150 years of Canadian research, innovation, and achievement in S.T.E.M. As you navigate through the exhibits and learn about the various S.T.E.M. fields we challenge you to discover Canada’s rich scientific heritage, learning all about where we’ve been and where we can go!
This Year’s Event Highlights!
The S.T.E.M. Street Festival
S.T.E.M. pavilions will line St. George Street with over 100 awe-inspiring demonstrations and hands-on experiments that showcase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
This year come and see robots, solar cars, and 3D worlds, build bridges and arches, solve math tricks, identify earth’s minerals, observe tabletop river bedforms, make slime, extract DNA, meet with zebrafish, leeches, and hissing cockroaches, and much, much more!
The Amazing Science Chase
In this chase young scientists must utilize their knowledge and know-how to accomplish a series of S.T.E.M. challenges for a chance to win great prizes!
A message from our 2017 Science Chase team!
Greetings young time-travelling scientists! To celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, your friends from Science Chase need your help once again! An evil mastermind has stolen rare Canadian artifacts from the Science Chase Museum and traveled back in time to scatter all these items at different points throughout history! Using a time machine and your knowledge in the field of science and technology, travel back into the past to find and collect all the missing artifacts. Once you have completed all the challenges, transport back to the year 2017 to return the special artifacts to the Science Chase Museum. You will be crowned the Time Travelling Hero of 2017 and receive limited edition prizes for completing your quest. Join the Science Chase team on May 13th to take part in an adventure of a lifetime!
The Toronto District Science Fair
In this fair students are given the opportunity to showcase their work alongside that of Canada’s leading researchers! Students with outstanding science posters will win funding for their classrooms! Funding that can help to enhance both the current and future scientific education of themselves and their peers.
This year’s fair will be geared towards Canada’s 150th Birthday and will see students present posters on famous Canadian scientists, discoveries, and inventions!
