Awards and Praise

Winner of the Reimagine Education Award for Presence Learning

In 2014, Integrated Science won a Reimagine Education Award for presence learning. Out of 426 applications from over 43 countries, iSci came out on top for doing what we do best. iSci's Dr. Chad Harvey reflected on the 1st Annual Reimagine Education Awards conference which was held at the Wharton School of the University of Pensnsylvania. He remarked that the conference was really well received and the global exposure that iSci received is incomparable. Even though this is only the first time these awards have been run, it has brought the recognition of Integrated Science from a Canadian scale, to an international one. Dr. Harvey is optimistic for where this exposure will bring the program in the future. The possible doors that this award has opened will undoubtedly benefit the program in future years.

Words from a Recent Graduate

"McMaster Honours Integrated Science (iSci) is an innovative new program that emphasizes the connections between scientific disciplines and encourages students to think outside the box. Interdisciplinary research projects constitute a major portion of iSci and require students to draw on multiple sciences to examine an issue, while developing time management, research, and presentation skills. The iSci program also emphasizes independent learning, leadership, lab skills, and scientific literacy. Upon graduation, these students' options will include graduate studies, professional school, and employment in scientific laboratories. Wherever they go, they are certain to make an impact."

–Solomon Barkley, iSci 2013 student
