UCN to modernize science labs with $1M from Canada, MB

February 17, 2017

University College of the North is set to upgrade and modernize its science labs with the support of $1M from the Canadian and Manitoban governments. Located at UCN’s campus in The Pas, the labs will be brought to industry standards through the upgrading of chemical storage facilities, fume hoods, and safety devices. “This funding provides important support for science programming offered at UCN. Students taking a science minor, or studying to become nurses, science teachers, or in our natural resources program will have modern facilities similar to those that they will be working in when they graduate,” said UCN Vice President of Finance and Resources Sandra Muilenburg. “We are very pleased that the federal and provincial governments have chosen to invest in UCN.” MB
