The Faculty of Science, assisted by faculty members from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, plays host to Team Canada's 16 members each summer. Selected by Youth Science Foundation (YSF) Canada to represent the country at the world's largest pre-university science fair, the team spends a day at UOIT exploring its campus and various labs. In addition, students practice their Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) presentations, which include topics ranging from physics and engineering to life sciences and biotechnology. Team members receive valuable feedback and presentation advice from faculty and staff.
Each year through a competitive selection process Team Canada, comprised of high school students from across Canada, is chosen by a panel of:
- Industry researchers;
- Team Canada alumni; and
- University faculty members.
