High school students will spend a fun-filled afternoon exploring futures in science and technology on Oct. 19 at Red Deer College. The Edacity Xtreme Challenge invites teams of two to compete in science-based challenges, earning points along the way. Local community groups will act as challenge hosts giving students real-world examples of science applications in industry. The event wraps up with dinners, awards and prizes. The initiative is created by MindFuel and made possible by the Rural Alberta Development Fund. Register for the challenge at www.edacity.ca.
