Discovery Awards is a night which celebrates the driven, the doers, the curious, and the dreamers. The Discovery Awards gala commemorates the successes of researchers, innovators, and educators whose careers, passions, and accomplishments have impacted Nova Scotia’s science and technology industries as well as local and global communities. 

Finalists in seven categories will be honoured and recipients announced live on the biggest stage in Atlantic Canada. Be ‘wow’ed by the stories and successes of incredible finalists, test your skills with the famous science challenge and discovery demo, PLUS enjoy a delicious dinner with leaders in science and innovation in our community.
