KPU Science Rendezvous
It is with heavy hearts that we officially announce that KPU Science Rendezvous 2020 is cancelled. Due to growing concerns over COVID-19 and the recent restrictions provincially and nationally to limit public gatherings of 50 or more people, the decision was made to cancel all Science Rendezvous events across Canada.
With everyone's health and wellness in mind, the right decision was made to cancel KPU Science Rendezvous and do our part to help keep our communities safe and healthy during this challenging time.
KPU looks forward to hosting this event every year and inspiring young minds. As part of our community, we thank you for your ongoing support!
For now, everyone's focus should be on keeping themselves and their families healthy and safe. We look forward to celebrating KPU Science Rendezvous with you next year, so mark your calendars for May 8, 2021!

Science Rendezvous is a public platform to promote science awareness and increase science literacy in Canada. The event is an annual day-long festival spanning multiple simultaneous sites across the country, designed to bring science face-to-face with the public and encourage more youth to consider science and art-related careers and study paths.
