Science Rendezvous is an all-day festival that takes science out of the lab and onto the streets. Thirty cities across Canada, including various locations in the GTA, will host events on the same day. All activities are free and open to the public.

“Connecting our scientists with our local community is a priority for us, so we are delighted to bring Science Rendezvous to Markham again this year,” says Ray Jayawardhana, dean of the Faculty of Science at York University. “It also underscores York University’s growing ties with and presence in the region, as we plan for a new Markham campus.”
