Workshop on science fair

The Quebec Aboriginal Science and Engineering Association (QASEA) is pleased to offer a science fair workshop for teachers of Quebec's First Nations and inuit communities. The Smarter Science workshop offered in cooperation with Youth Science Canada (promoter of the Canada Wide Science Fair) will help teachers motivate and better prepare their students in developing their scientific projects.
