What is ScienceFest?
ScienceFest is an annual conference celebrating the knowledge, creativity and passion for learning science of Dawson College students. The conference showcases work, projects, and activities from across the Science, Medical Studies and Engineering (SMSE) programs and in collaboration with other Dawson College initiatives such as SPACE It is a lively festival of science featuring sessions of talks, poster presentations, science-fair-style installations, live demonstrations and activities.
How do I get involved?
We encourage all students in any of the SMSE programs to get involved. Have you or are you about to complete an Independent Study Comprehensive Examination or some other independent project? Would you like to give a talk, present a poster or demonstrate a project from this academic year? Maybe you want to get involved in some other capacity? We are presently looking for presenters and student volunteers to help make this year’s ScienceFest a grand success.
For the student presenters, there will be prizes awarded in a variety of categories including:
- Poster presentation (Biology NYA category)
- Poster presentation (Independent CE category)
- Project presentation/demonstration
- Oral presentation

If you are a faculty member who has been involved with program activities or as a supervisor/mentor to student projects, we encourage you to inform your students of the opportunity to share their work.
ScienceFest Photography Competition
Again this year for ScienceFest! Inspired by the SPACE theme of Technique, students in all programs are invited to participate in the 2nd annual ScienceFest Photography Competition.
Last year’s Jury Prize was awarded to Celeste Groulx for “spilling colors”. The picture was highly rated for its aesthetics, scientific value and communication.
Who will be the winner this year?! For more details visit here.
Volunteers are always needed to turn the ScienceFest event into the great success it deserves to be. Your participation could be formally credited for volunteering hours (Recognition of Student Involvement), and it looks good on your CV!
