  1. Science Rendezvous:

Science Rendezvous ( at the University of Toronto (St. George Campus) is a student-run organisation that aims to promote general scientific consciousness to the public, particularly among youth and their families. We host Canada's largest science outreach festival by bringing science out of the lab and onto the street, reaching over 25,000 visitors annually at the St. George Campus. Our aim is to increase public involvement in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.). This event offers visitors the chance to interact with world-class researchers, witness awe-inspiring demonstrations, partake in hands-on experiments and, above all, have fun while discovering S.T.E.A.M. in a whole new way!

We are now actively recruiting for the Co-Chair positions to lead the executive committee that will be organising our 2023 event. We are seeking individuals who not only have a keen interest in scientific outreach, but who have experience with event planning (involving strong leadership, organisational skills, budgeting, and coordinating with third parties).
