The Student Awards Night was a huge success on November 4th, 2016. The night took place in the beautiful hall at the OISE Auditorium at the University of Toronto and started off with an excellent presentation titled “Beer Brewing – On the Molecular Level” by Samantha Smith, an avid home brewer, a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto and the Chair of CIC Toronto chapter.
We then recognized the academic achievement of our students in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from Universities and Colleges across the GTA. 17 Silver medals were awarded to congratulate students with the best academic performance, 12 Book Prizes were awarded to those with the greatest academic improvement and Gold, Honourable Mentions and Bronze Awards for the 48th Canadian Chemistry Olympiad participants. A total of 32 Awards were given to students from the University of Toronto St. George Campus, Mississauga Campus and Scarborough Campus, York University, Ryerson University, Durham College, Sheridan College, Seneca College and related high schools.
