Science Outreach

The outreach branch of McGill’s Trottier Space Institute and Branches joined forces to offer a new science program called Outbound Explore. The groups collaborated with the Cree community of Chisasibi in Northern Quebec, to share experiences and knowledge with youth on science and post-secondary education at McGill, with the hopes of inspiring the next generation of scientists.
