Check out the STEAM Horizon Awards!

Are you often described as a leader, an achiever, or an innovator? Do you have limitless drive, ambition, and determination? If so, there’s an opportunity to receive a $25,000 prize towards your post-secondary education.

The STEAM Horizon Awards, a newly funded prize program, invites Canada’s youth to promote positive changes throughout their community using science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).

Up to seven students will each be awarded a $25,000 prize for their post-secondary education. Two of the seven prizes will go to Indigenous youth. The prizes will be funded by the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation Foundation, alongside eight Founding Partners. We are confident that these recipients will act as role models and ambassadors for future STEAM generations.

Please Stand By as we resolve our Online Registration System Issues

Due to high server load during the opening of our camp registration on April 1st, the Science Venture registration site experienced technical difficulties which affected some aspects of our system. As a result, we have currently disabled all payment functionality of the system until such time as we are confident that we  have resolved these issues.

While the payment functionality is currently inactive, all other registration functions are still working properly and registration remains open.
