A Call to the Community - Help Foster a Science Culture

The Office of Research Services has received the following information which we are forwarding to our e-mail list members. Please see attachment also.

NSERC is leading the stewardship of what was formerly called National Science and Technology Week. Now known as Science Odyssey, this 10-day series of science-based activities and events across Canada will take place from May 6 to 15, 2016.

In an effort to increase public participation in science and engineering and to foster a stronger science culture in Canada, NSERC is joining forces with leading science outreach organizations, including Science Rendezvous, to promote science and cutting-edge Canadian research. 
We are calling on you to invite your researchers and students to participate in Science Odyssey by volunteering their time to our key partner, Science Rendezvous
Science Rendezvous: A Signature Science Event
Science Rendezvous is a national non-profit dedicated to the promotion of science and cutting-edge Canadian research. Science Rendezvous will be held on May 7th 2016 as the marquee event of Science Odyssey.

Your university’s participation in this high-impact attraction will draw the public’s attention to the world-leading research talent on your campus. NSERC strongly encourages every institution to participate in Science Rendezvous as their contribution to Science Odyssey in 2016.

In terms of impact, Science Rendezvous annually reaches over 200,000 attendees and more than 10 million media hits. Please visit www.sciencerendezvous.ca for more information. 
With your support, Science Rendezvous together with Science Odyssey, will be able to light the spark of curiosity that will inspire the next generation of researchers and innovators critical to our collective future.
Please contact:scienceodyssey@nserc-crsng.gc.ca for further information.
Thank you in advance for your support.
