Discovery Centre presents Nova Scotia’s most prestigious event celebrating our best and brightest in science and technology. The Discovery Awards Gala takes place on November 23, 2017.
The Discovery Awards bring together academia, business and the community to honour people whose exemplary work has helped make Nova Scotia a leader in science, technology and innovation.

About the Discovery Awards
The Discovery Awards began in the spring of 2002, to recognize talented individuals and outstanding companies in Nova Scotia for their national and international work in the science and technology fields.
The awards bring together universities, corporations, businesses, government and the local community for an evening of celebration. Our award recipients put science achievement in the minds of the local community and serve as role models for youth who may well be future Discovery award winners!
