West Kootenay Boundary Regional Science fair recipient accepting MIDAS prize!

It was another great day spent with young innovators this past weekend at the West Kootenay & Boundary Regional Science Fair 2018!  An inspirational day seeing what approximately 200 local students from around the region are showcasing in science experiments, studies, and research & innovation projects.

There is so much to be gained for these young participants through the Science Fair experience:  research skills, problem solving, thinking scientifically, public speaking and connecting with other participants, sharing ideas and process.

We were there in full force to help celebrate the incredible ideas, skill and talent while sharing the innovative possibilities available through the MIDAS Fab Lab.

MIDAS Lab Director was so pleased to present the MIDAS Innovation Award to student Dylan Peil for his fabulous BioMechanical Arm:  4 hours Custom Training at MIDAS at a value of $600.

MIDAS Innovation Award winner for Mechanical Arm


It was a celebration of local innovation and MIDAS & KAST were there to offer plenty of information about what goes on here in the Fab Lab.

And check this out…. in the spirit of all the fun of the Science Fair, a bit of a twist on MONOPOLY:  MIDASOPOLY!  3D printing at it’s most fun!
