Huggins High School Science Seminar - May 2

Aspiring scientists from across the Maritimes are invited to join us on Friday, May 2nd for the 29th Annual Huggins High School Science Seminar.

You'll hear from scientists working across Nova Scotia and beyond in different fields. The Huggins seminar offers you a unique opportunity to learn from—and interact with—real scientists who work on interesting projects on an everyday basis.

This year's seminar includes four keynotes that dive into topics like drinking water, scientific bias, geological expeditions, and electron microscopy. Our fun, contentious professorial showdown returns as the Desert Island Debate, and we'll round out the day with a chemistry show.

Registration is now open: visit our Huggins page for complete information or contact us with your questions.
