Winnipeg Science Tour
Limited Space Available
A science tour of Winnipeg starts at the Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health, which includes the National Microbiology Lab (NML). You will get a behind-the-scenes look at how researchers carefully handle some of the most virulent pathogens. Next stop is the University of Manitoba Faculty of Health Sciences’ sensor-filled apartment and ‘mixed-reality’ lab, which may help improve health care delivery at home and in remote areas. The day will end with polar bears and the Assiniboine Park Zoo’s ‘Journey to Churchill’ tour, including a visit to the onsite lab.
Note: Because the NML can only accommodate 36 people, this tour is capped at 36 guests. Furthermore, with registration for this tour, NML security requires all attendees register two weeks before the start of the tour. This list must provide for each guest: Full name, Phone number, City of residence and (for non-Canadian citizens) and copy of front page of passport. People must also bring photo ID and close-toed shoes to enter.
