A big congrats to Diogo Iwasaki who placed first in the province writing the Michael Smith challenge exam.
The Michael Smith Science Challenge is a national competition written by students in Grade 10 Science or lower. It emphasizes logical thinking, and covers material in the science curriculum common to all provinces. It is named in honour of UBC’s Nobel Prize winner Dr. Michael Smith, and is sponsored by the UBC faculty of Science. Prizes are awarded to the top students (and their teachers) in each province and nationally. The exam primarily covered logical thinking and science concepts. Diogo placed 1st amongst all contestants in Manitoba and placed within the top 10% nationally!!
