Huggins High School Science Seminar

Every year, we invite talented high school students like you to join us for an action-packed day of interactive and engaging presentations. At the Huggins High School Science Seminar, you'll learn about different paths to becoming a scientist, and how science can help you to look at everyday life with a different perspective. 

Established in 1986 by Dr. Charles Huggins—Acadia alumnus, Chancellor Emeritus, and Nobel laureate—the seminar will introduce you to advances in science and technology that can offer you exciting opportunities for involvement in the future. Topics vary from year to year, and cover a range of different sciences and interests.

In our 2017 seminar, we discussed psychology, measuring the potential trouble of tidal energy, and the surprising science of music. We also ventured into labs and science buildings like the mLab and Biology Building for four activity sessions. Thank you to all our students from across Nova Scotia who joined us to make this another special event!
