High schools students explore science, engineering and technology at #SETDay2018

February 26, 2018 — 

Nearly 200 high school students and teachers arrived at the U of M campus on Feb. 23 to explore the science, engineering and technology (SET) playground.

Students had hands on experience with research through activities hosted by various faculties, including: Agricultural and Food Sciences; Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources; Kinesiology and Recreation Management and Science. Let’s Talk Science volunteers also hosted activities in two sessions throughout the day.

Participants took in ‘SET Talks’ from U of M researchers Dr. Annemieke Farenhorst (Agricultural and Food Sciences), PhD candidate and Vanier Scholar Deirdre Khan (Biological Sciences) and Dr. Julie Ho (Max Rady College of Medicine).

SET Day attendees were asked to interpret the day through their own eyes on social media, using #SETDay2018. Here’s a look at what they saw and did.

Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
