Join the Celebration at the 18th Annual Discovery Awards!

Mark your calendars. The date for the 18th annual Discovery Awards has been set and this year we’re going virtual! In this live online format, we will honour the finalists in four categories, introduce a new inductee to the Science Hall of Fame, and recognize this year’s inspiring Youth Award recipient. We’re working hard to maintain all of the elements of our in-person gala, interweaving the elements of an awards dinner with the fun and interactive approach for which the Discovery Centre is known. The Discovery Awards is an event unlike any other, and this year will be no exception!

Join the best and brightest in the science and technology industries on November 26th for an unforgettable evening that is guaranteed to unleash the inner scientist in each of us! You’ll be part of the excitement virtually as we honour recipients in six categories and celebrate the importance of science, technology, and innovation in our province. Applaud each of the recipients as they receive their awards and witness the live moments when we announce the category winners, Hall of Fame recipients, and Youth award. We’ll even deliver a charcuterie box for two and elements to participant in the ever-popular game, to your door to enjoy during the event.

All proceeds support the Discovery Centre’s not-for-profit mission to bring STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) to life through fun, interactive learning experiences.
