New lab to help nurture scientists

  • Print

A new facility is set to help nurture the next generation of scientists.

St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre has officially opened a state-of-the-art science laboratory that will bring hands-on science education to students in the province, it was announced recently.

Organizers say the 3,000-square-foot RBC Youth BIOLab will help students develop a passion for science through interactive activities and experiments that will complement the provincial science curriculum.

Since 2005, SBHR has partnered with the Louis Riel School Division in a biomedical outreach program called It’s All About Me, which is designed to improve science and health literacy among Manitoba students. To date, the program has impacted more than 30,000 students from kindergarten to Grade 12.

Prior to the new lab’s construction, SBHR’s teaching liason Stephen Jones would visit schools to connect science learning and the classroom, and now the new RBC Youth BIOLab will allow students to conduct science experiments in a safe and spacious teaching facility under the same roof as the researchers based at the hospital’s research centre.
