The University College of the North has officially unveiled its $2M science lab renovation, which was funded by the Government of Canada and Government of Manitoba. The renovations have seen the lab expanded to increase capacity to up to 240 students with a designated space for lab assistants, as well as upgrades to chemical storage and lab equipment. “The rapid advancement of science, technology, engineering and math means it is our obligation to ensure our students are given the tools necessary to succeed in careers in those fields,” said MB Education and Training Minister Ian Wishart. “By partnering with University College of the North and the federal government, we are creating a place for students in Manitoba’s northern communities to thrive and spur innovation.” MB | UCN
