Science North, Sudbury’s science centre, was the recipient of the 2008 Michael Smith Award for Science Promotion by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The award is presented annually by NSERC to honour individuals and groups who make an outstanding contribution to the promotion of science in Canada through activities that take science outside the regular school system to reach people in all walks of life.

“Science North has earned an excellent reputation for presenting science to people in a way that captures their imagination and their interest,” said NSERC president Suzanne Fortier
The Michael Smith Awards are an opportunity for Canada’s science community to recognize, support and encourage outstanding science promoters.

Michael Smith won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in October 1993. The award recognized his groundbreaking genetic research that paved the way for today’s biotechnology breakthroughs.

Dr. Smith used both his Nobel Prize money and his newfound clout to try to make a difference for others.
