The St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre’s RBC Youth BIOlab hosted over 4800 students, and saw another 2700 in Manitoba schools note this year, 35% of which were “en francais” !
Since the Youth BIOlab started full time outreach in 2005, teachers Steve Jones and Meghan Kynoch have seen over 60,000 students from across Manitoba, with 23,000 of those through the Youth BIOlab since opening in 2013. This year also saw some new initiatives with mentored science projects for First Nations students that ended up going to Canada-Wide Science Fair, while Meghan also traveled to Cross Lake First Nation to lay the foundation for a major outreach partnership for the next 5 years.
Congratulations Steve and Meghan!
