Science Rendezvous 2021 – Saturday, May 8

Science Rendezvous 2021 will be taking place VIRTUALLY  Saturday, May 8, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Each year, the Science Rendezvous street fair attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the University of Toronto, aiming to foster an appreciation of S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) in the community and to enhance scientific literacy. We will continue to run our programming this year through an online format and would like to invite you and your department to attend our events – from Science Chase experiments, our annual Science Fair competition, and our first ever production, “The SR Show”, featuring engaging demonstrations from over 30 University of Toronto departments. We hope you will join us for a day filled with fun and science!

If you know of any families or communities that may benefit from a free interactive science festival, please also pass along this information to them.

Next Steps for the Session:

LEED Green Associate (GA) Training
May 8 @ 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm

LEED is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. Buildings can become LEED Certified as can people! The best way to break into the sustainability space is to attain the LEED Green Associate. It also shows employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field. Since the LEED GA exam doesn’t have a stellar pass rate, the value of the extra letters behind your name will carry even more weight.

My workshops have helped nearly 10K students and professionals learn the material cold (important for interview prep) AND clear the exam with a very high passing rate.
