SCWIST Symposium for Young Scientists

Our inaugural Symposium for STEM students launched this summer, under the vision and leadership of Dr. Noeen Malik, Director of Communications & Events at SCWIST and chair of the symposium and Ashley van der Pouw Kraan, symposium vice-chair. There were 15 presentations held every Wednesday at 12pm PST from June to September.

The symposium provided a fantastic opportunity for young scientists to get exposure for their research and expand their academic network. Learn more about the origins of the Science Symposium.
