Science Academy - University of Windsor


The 2021 UWindsor Science Academy will be held virtually, from July 5 to July 9 . While we will be meeting online this year and our daily meetings will be shorter, many elements of the Science Academy program will be similar to previous years. Students will learn about each of our departments and programs, as well as student supports and extracurricular opportunities. They will also connect with and hear from current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as staff and faculty members in Science.

Students who participate in the week-long program will be eligible to enter a competition to win an entrance scholarship to the Faculty of Science at UWindsor.

The UWindsor Science Academy Program is a free outreach program for secondary students designed to engage them in scientific activities at the University of Windsor.

Students from the region are selected to attend the Faculty of Science at the University of Windsor over a one week period and participate in lectures, hands-on laboratory exercises and research lab tours within each department in the Faculty of Science.

This program provides opportunities for local students to explore the various science programs offered at the University of Windsor, meet faculty and staff and engage with other science students.
