MILSET International Science Fair

Once every two years, handpicked young scientists from all over the world are invited to the MILSET International Science Fair, which is meant to be an opportunity for enrichment and sharing, rather than a competition. Thus, in addition to presenting their project, the exhibitors of the Canadian delegation will take part in cultural and scientific activities and will attend conferences and seminars.

Photos of the delegation, as well as of the young people who make it up are available on the official Facebook page of Expo-sciences Hydro-Québec (
