Once your students and children have registered for the symposium, keep checking this website for updates on our lists of exhibitors, speakers, times and room numbers.

A lunch area is available for students on the third floor of the RBC Convention Centre next to the Exhibitors, so students can stay on-site all day (9am-3pm) during the two-day event without needing to leave the premises.

Students should be well prepared when asking questions to speakers and to exhibitors. Subject area teachers should request a written assignment from each student. A follow-up class at school would assist the teachers in evaluating the effectiveness of the Symposium.
