Discovery Awards

Join us for the Discovery Awards’ milestone 20th year! We’re celebrating Wednesday, November 23rd at the Halifax Convention Centre. Tickets and Tables on sale soon.

The Discovery Awards are all about celebrating outstanding innovators whose game-changing achievements have helped to make Nova Scotia a leader on the world stage. As the marquee fundraiser, all proceeds directly support the Discovery Centre’s not-for-profit mission, enabling us to provide the very best in hands-on STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) for youth from one end of the province to the other.

Our award recipients put science achievement in the minds of our community members, inspiring an excitement around STEAM learning and serving as role models for our innovators of tomorrow – our youth. 

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.  NOMINATE NOW.
