Call for Participants--Science Odyssey 2018, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada

I am reaching out to you to invite your organization to participate in Science Odyssey 2018. The ten-day national STEM celebration will take place from May 11-20, 2018.

What is Science Odyssey?

As you may already know, Science Odyssey ( is an effort to increase public awareness and participation in science, health, technology, maths and engineering, and to foster a stronger science culture in Canada. This celebration brings together diverse partners from government, academia, science centres and museums, libraries, schools and educators, parents and, most importantly, Canadian youth interested in STEM to promote science and cutting-edge Canadian research.

Why participate in Science Odyssey?

Science Odyssey partners play a key role in generating engagement and excitement throughout the 10 days and in showing Canadians how science, technology and innovation shape our daily lives. By joining forces we all increase science literacy in Canada and represent all major scientific fields.
