1) Why do you love science?

Science and engineering allows anyone with a good idea to have a go at tackling some of the toughest problems facing us today. It allows us to gain a better understanding of our world, and it affords us the opportunity to use that understanding to create meaningful solutions to improve people’s lives. I think it is this particular aspect of science that has particularly inspired my research over the years.

Youth Science Canada congratulates the 2015 CWSF Alumni Award winner Dr. Jaymie Matthews. His inspiring speech is posted below.

You’d think I’d have been disappointed that – for an event whose title contains “Canada-Wide” where Canada is really wide… 9,306 km wide, to be exact, from Cape Spear in Newfoundland and Labrador to Mount Saint Elias in the Yukon Territory – I had travelled barely 0.8 percent of the Canada-Wide span.
