Science Odyssey—that magical time every May—is one of our favourite times every year. It always gets us all fired up about science and engineering!
If you're not familiar, Science Odyssey, which happened this year between May 7 and 22, is a national celebration of Canadian achievements in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). As always, we featured two weeks of fascinating science posts from us and helped host the Science Odyssey Contest with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The 2022 entries that we received from readers were fantastic and we're so excited to finally announce the winners of this year's prizes. This year, NSERC and Owlkids gave away a slew of prizes in two age categories based around our three magazines—there was an OWL/Chickadee group and a Chirp group. There were grand prize winners and runners-up in each category.
