Montreal, July 17, 2015 - From July 19 to 25, 2015, eight Quebecers will have the chance to represent the country at the 15e edition of the International Science Fair of MILSET (International Movement for Scientific and Technical Leisure) to be held in Brussels, Belgium.
Selected during the 2014 and 2015 editions of the Super Expo-sciences Hydro-Québec, Quebec final, the exhibitors have already succeeded in impressing the judges among the best scientific projects in the province.
A unique experience
More a place for meetings and exchanges than a scientific competition, the MILSET International Science Fair will allow exhibitors to present their scientific project to thousands of people from all over the world.
In addition to presenting their project, exhibitors will take part in cultural and scientific activities and attend conferences and seminars.
A memorable experience for the exhibitors as underlined by Mr. Roland Grand'Maison, Director General of the CDLS-CLS Network: “The MILSET International Science Fair brings together the young scientists of tomorrow so that they can share their innovative ideas with other young people as passionate as they are! On site, participants develop friendships and networks of contacts that they will keep for a long time. The CDLS-CLS Network is really happy to allow them to live such a formative experience! "
Innovative projects that will make the country shine on the international scene
Canada will be very well represented thanks to the projects of the young exhibitors. Visitors will be invited to discover their project: design of a ramp to separate gold from sterile rock, a GPS for visually impaired people, a prototype to monitor posture and promising experiments for the treatment of different cancers and that of the Ebola virus!
