Manitoba Schools Science Symposium

This year the Manitoba Schools Science Symposium (MSSS) had 330 students present their projects to over 150 judges from industry and academia. In addition the students had the opportunity to participate in interactive science activities on the University of Manitoba campus.

Doctors Manitoba was again proud to provide bronze, silver, and gold medals to the participants at the awards ceremony, as well as providing awards for the best projects in each age group. Additionally, Doctors Manitoba helped to send three students to participate at the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa. At the national fair, the MSSS team won three medals including a bronze, silver, and gold.

Doctors Manitoba is proud to be a major sponsor of the 2018 Manitoba Schools Science Symposium. Doctors Manitoba sponsored the following categories. Congratulations to all the winners.
