Eight Quebecers amongst thousands of young scientists in Fortaleza, Brazil!

From 7th to 12th August, 2017, eight Quebecers will have the opportunity to represent their country at the 16th edition of the MILSET (International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology) International Science Fair, in Fortaleza, Brazil.


Selected during the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Super Expo-sciences Hydro-Québec, Quebec Final, the exhibitors have already succeeded at impressing judges, amongst the best scientific projects in the province.


A unique experience


The MILSET International Science Fair is not only a scientific competition, but also a setting for meeting and exchanging knowledge, allowing the exhibitors to present their science projects to thousands of people, from more than 80 countries.

In addition to presenting their projects, the exhibitors will also take part in various cultural and scientific activities, as well as attend conferences and seminars.


It will be a memorable experience for the exhibitors; in the words of Mr Roland Grand’Maison, director general of the Réseau Technoscience: “The MILSET International Science Fair brings together the young scientists of tomorrow, so that they may share their innovating ideas with other youths, just as passionate as themselves! The participants will develop friendships and a network of contacts that will last them long after the fair is over. The Réseau Technoscience is proud to be able to offer them to this unique learning experience!”


Innovating projects that will make our country shine on an international scene


Canada will be very well represented, thanks to the young exhibitors’ projects. Visitors at the fair will be invited to discover their projects about effects of the screen use on children, the quest of a lost Maya City, an innovative environmental engineering project that aims to decrease the growing rates of global warming and much more!

The Canadian delegation will be composed of:


  • Thomas Ribeiro
