Below is a list of organizations and people I respect and recommend, with a few comments about why.

  • An annual springtime event aimed at engaging all Canadians with science and researchers!
  • I used to volunteer with them (creating new programs and events), and look back fondly at the experience.

Canada-wide Science Fair

  • A wonderful organization encouraging students to create their own research.
  • I helped organize their 2011 event in Toronto and was very impressed with the organization and the students. I wish my high school teacher’s had been involved!

  • I sit on their Board of Directors.
  • Follow E4D on Twitter and Facebook for updates, or become a volunteer.
