“Take Our Kids to Work” is a day set aside for Grade 9 students to accompany a parent, relative, or friend at their workplace. The goal is to give these students some perspective on the day to day work routine.
Youth BioLab teaching liaison Steve Jones took the students on a laboratory tour of the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, then brought them to the Youth BIOlab to perform some cool experiments!
The RBC Youth BIOlab Jeunesse teaching laboratory was built with support from Manitoba Education, RBC, and the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation and opened its doors to students in Spring 2013. The program is delivered in partnership with Manitoba school divisions and with the support of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to connect St-Boniface Hospital and Research Centre to classroom learning.
