Discovery Awards

Join the celebration on November 23rd at the Halifax Convention Centre for the 20th Annual Discovery Awards in support of Discovery Centre’s charitable mission to advance science literacy through fun, interactive learning experiences.  

It’s a night that celebrates the driven, the doers, the curious, and the dreamers. The Discovery Awards recognize outstanding researchers, innovators, and educators who are helping to make Nova Scotia a leader in science and innovation both at home and around the world.  

Be part of the excitement as we honour finalists and recipients in five prestigious categories, announce this year’s inspiring Youth Award recipient, and honour this year’s inductee to the Science Hall of Fame – all on the biggest stage in Atlantic Canada! Be ‘wow’ed by ground-breaking achievements, test your skills with Discovery Centre’s famous science challenge and Discovery Demo, PLUS enjoy dinner and networking with more than 500 leaders in science and innovation. 

Discovery Awards is the marquee annual fundraiser for Discovery Centre. Your support helps us to achieve our charitable mission to spark curiosity, passion, and an excitement for STEAM among the youth of today who will be our leaders of tomorrow.  

NEW: There is a new Discovery Award category to nominate an outstanding individual – The Public Impact Award, presented by Research Nova Scotia. The award will recognize a researcher whose research has benefited Nova Scotians by tangibly improving the economy, environment, healthcare system, or society.
