Free science festival returns to in-person format for the first time since 2019

Looking for a fun way to connect with people, share your passion and knowledge and gain some practical skills? Think about volunteering for Science Rendezvous!

On May 11-13, the largest celebration of science and engineering in Canada, Science Rendezvous, will be held in-person at the UM Fort Garry campus for the first time since 2019.

Started in Toronto in 2008, Science Rendezvous is a festival that brings science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) research and innovation out of the lab and onto the street in a festive and engaging style. The festival features stage shows, robotics,  large-scale experiments and demonstrations designed to educate and delight the minds of curious individuals of all ages.

This year, the festival will feature over 40 unique interactive science booths with hands-on experiments, make-and-take projects and demonstrations to stimulate the mind and excite the senses. Kids, schools, and parents will be invited to campus to participate in practical fun and mind-blowing activities.

How Epidemics End

How do societies know when an epidemic is over and normal life can resume?

Join Dr. Erica Charters, professor of the global history of medicine at the University of Oxford for an insightful conversation on how war, disease, and state formation intersect. Erica Charters currently leads a multidisciplinary project on How Epidemics End.
