2006 Canadian University Science Games a success
In a double dose of success, the University of Windsor didn't just host the Canadian University Science Games – Team Windsor took top honours as well.
The Canadian Universities Science Games brought more than 250 students in 12 teams from schools across the country to the University of Windsor in January. The students’ scientific abilities were challenged in a variety of ways including trivia contests, debate, athletic and artistic ability mixed with science. The highlight of this annual event was the Cascade Challenge which requires the participants to coordinate a set of chemical reactions and scientific principles to perform a simple task. New to the games this year was “Visions of the Future” where students received information on educational opportunities available to them after graduation.
More than $100,000 dollars in donations, sponsorships and gifts-in-kind were raised in support of the games.
