Science Rendezvous is a public platform to promote science awareness in Canada. It informs and works to engage and transform the general public from passive supporters of science and technology into active and passionate champions. In the process, people will develop a basic understanding of the important role science plays in our rapidly changing world.
Science Rendezvous is designed to bring science and its practitioners face-to-face with the public. The program strives to encourage a public understanding that science affects their daily lives and that it is a worthy educational and career path for our youth.
