The University of Waterloo’s Ecohydrology Research Group will welcome 175 middle school students from four local schools for an exclusive morning workshop as part of World Wetlands Day on Monday.
World Wetlands Day is an annual celebration commemorating the signing of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, an international treaty with 168 contracting parties committed to protecting more than 200 million hectares of designated wetlands. Canada comprises a surprising 25% of the world's wetlands.
Media are invited to attend the launch of the EnRICHed Start program at the University of Waterloo. The launch will feature former Dragon’s Den star, Bruce Croxon.
EnRICHed Start is a video-based learning program that teaches young people how to manage credit, save money effectively, and invest wisely. Designed to help students get out of debt, it will also open doors for students to become successful entrepreneurs and investors in the future.
The Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology) and Peter Braid, Member of Parliament for Kitchener-Waterloo announced renewed support for the Institute of Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo today.
