Founded in 2016, the STEAM Horizon Awards presented by Ingenium – Canada’s Science and Innovation Museums and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada highlight young Canadians who are considered leaders, driven by limitless motivation, ambition and determination to promote change in their communities using science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STIAM).
The winners were awarded a $25,000 scholarship for their post-secondary education. These youths are inspirational ambassadors for future generations in STEAM.
Ingenium celebrates the innovative spirit of Canadians by telling the stories of those who dared to think differently. Inspired by the power of ingenuity, Ingenium encompasses three national institutions: the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. These three museums are places where the past meets the future, with spaces where visitors can learn and explore, play and discover. Beyond the physical walls of its museums, Ingenium’s engaging digital content, outreach programs and travelling exhibitions serve to educate, entertain, and engage audiences across Canada and around the world.
