News: The Randy Kobes Undergraduate Poster Competition

The late Randy Kobes, Associate Dean of Science, was an outstanding academic, physicist and educator of young people. He was fully dedicated to public engagement in science. His contributions to community learning at The University of Winnipeg are immeasurable. One of his many contributions is founding the Manitoba chapter of LetÂ’s Talk Science, which promotes scientific literacy by having UWinnipeg volunteer scientists visit classrooms, present interactive experiments and raise awareness of science. Randy Kobes passed away on Saturday, September 18, 2010.

"This science poster competition has been named The Randy Kobes Undergraduate Poster Session in honour of Randy, the late Associate Dean of Science," explained Rod Hanley, UWinnipeg's Dean of Science. "He was integral in making this competition a success. Randy always dedicated his time and energy in assisting undergraduate students. This competition expands their research opportunities beyond what is available at other institutions thanks to Randy's commitment and vision."
