From May 6th-8th Dawson will be holding ScienceFest 2015, a pilot initiative for an annual student-centered conference at Dawson. The conference showcases student work, projects, and activities from across the Science, Medical Studies and Engineering programs. It promises to be a lively festival of science featuring sessions of talks, poster presentations, and science-fair-style installations.
ScienceFest extends the opportunity for students to share their knowledge, creativity and passion for learning science in a public forum and to be recognized for their efforts and achievements. S.P.A.C.E. is happy to be collaborating with the Science program to help celebrate science at Dawson.
