Dakota, Glenlawn have designs on labs

  • Print

Students in southeast Winnipeg will get more opportunities to explore the scientific world.

The province recently announced that design work is underway on a number of science labs in Winnipeg schools, including Dakota and Glenlawn collegiates.

And while school’s out for the summer, construction is currently underway on 11 science labs in eight high schools across the city, said Education Minister Nancy Allan in a news release.

"Our government knows these critical infrastructure projects provide students with high-quality learning opportunities that will inspire them to pursue careers in science and prepare them for challenging and rewarding jobs in the global economy," she said.

The projects are part of the government’s Science Education Action Plan, which includes funding for science classroom renewal, teacher training and new strategic partnerships to promote provincial science programming.  

The plan is intended to ensure high school students have access to the best labs and equipment and are taught according to a continually updated science curriculum, Allan said.
