SciXchange awarded the 2021 William Edmond Logan Award by RCIScience

Award honours outstanding contributions to the public understanding of science by a Canadian organization
November 05, 2021

SciXchange, a centre founded by Ryerson University’s Faculty of Science, has been awarded the 2021 William Edmond Logan Award by the Royal Canadian Institute for Science for “outstanding contributions to the public understanding of science by a Canadian organization.” The centre has been recognized for its innovative outreach programs that reach a wide-ranging audience of youth and adults, as well as its work in actively addressing traditional imbalances in STEM disciplines.

The William Edmond Logan Award was created in 2015 as a companion to the Fleming Medal to recognize organizations rather than individuals. Together, the Fleming Medal and William Edmond Logan Award are two of a very small number of awards for outstanding science communication efforts in Canada.
