Join us for the first ever Ancaster Talks event on Tuesday June 5th from 6:30pm – 9:30pm at the Coach and Lantern! See details and free registration below!
Ancaster Talks will start off with an interesting, inspirational and/or educational talk. Followed up by a casual, fun pub night.
The first event will feature a talk by Bay Area Engineering and Science Fair (BASEF) organizer George Geczy (@GeorgeGeczy), followed by a series of presentations from the winners of the 2018 BASEF. It’s a chance to hear about fascinating science projects completed by bright young minds!
In addition to organizing BASEF, George is co-owner and director of BattleGoat Studios (@battlegoat), creator of the Supreme Ruler strategy video game series that has won many awards, including Best PC Game at the 2006 Canadian Awards for the Electronic & Animated Arts. George is also an instructor at Mohawk College, Hamilton Public Library Trustee, and volunteers with IEC Hamilton programs to teach kids coding and entrepreneurism.
For over 50 years, BASEF has provided a forum for students in the Hamilton, Halton and surrounding areas to develop their scientific skills and win over $200,000 in prizes, scholarships and trips. The Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair ran from March 21-27, 2018 at Mohawk College and is open to students registered in grades 7-12 from Hamilton, Halton, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk and Six Nations.
