Science, Engineering and Technology Day
Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) Day is held annually for grade 11 and 12 students and their teachers in Manitoba. Participants visit campus to learn about research through a series of hands-on activities and presentations.
SET Day begins at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast and registration and ends at 3:00 p.m.
A range of faculty-based hands-on activities are held every year. Some examples include:
- Analyzing biomechanics of movement
- Building a robot
- Bridge building Geomatics
- Lab-based activity in biological sciences
- The science of food
- The tiny, tiny world of materials.
Hear from our research experts! Each year, three SET Talks are given by researchers at the UM from a variety of fields. Some examples includes learning about river ice engineering to the microbiome of breast milk to quantum physics to immune systems.
2021 SET Day registration will open at a later date.
