Your Science community

Within the Faculty of Science, there are several student run groups to join. There are department-based student associations which frequently run social events to participate in. The following are current active student associations.

The Women in Science Society is an inclusive student-led group dedicated to supporting women and minorities pursuing science at the graduate and post-doc level. Participate in their discussions, attend one of their events, or just visit them in their office at ESC 102!

Concept Science is a partnership between Concept and the Faculty of Science. The program provides students with the tools and resources to take their idea and develop a world-class science company. Students will have access to a discovery lab space, coaching and mentorship, and opportunities to work collaboratively with peers.

Want to take your passion for Science to the next level? Share your knowledge with the local community through Science Outreach.
