Youth CEO Program
The Youth CEO program is a Business Council of Manitoba (BCM) initiative to support Indigenous, new Canadian and underserved youth. The program aims to:
- Provide youth with training and work experience with Council companies
- Expose youth to the opportunities that exist in the business community
- Expose companies and business leaders to its future workforce
BioSTEM™ is an exciting new education initiative that inspires high school students and helps them develop superior STEM skills across multiple grades and courses by using Conviron technology.
Seeding Discovery Competition
The competition aimed to equip a successful university or college student with a high-performing GEN1000 plant growth chamber that would enable them to fulfill a meaningful research program in the field of plant sciences, biology, and biotechnology. The competition was judged by a panel of plant scientists assembled by Plantae’s founder, the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB).
