Workshops welcome new Canadian youths to consider science

A series of interactive workshops helped introduce about 40 young members of the local refugee and immigrant communities to careers in science, Wednesday on the UWindsor campus.

Career Exploration Day offered information on applying to university as well as activities involving computer science, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences and biology, says organizer Michelle Bondy, outreach coordinator for the Faculty of Science.

“These young people were really excited to get a behind-the-scenes look at science education,” says Bondy. “I believe our effort to get them thinking about science at the University of Windsor was a success.”

The event was a joint project of the Faculty of Science and the Windsor branch of the YMCA. See more photos of the day’s activities on the UWindsor Facebook page.
