Young Citizens: 10 stories of science, creativity and innovation

Watch 10 Young Citizens videos that show how science and technology have changed the way we work, live and play.

November 19, 2018

Every year, the top Heritage Fair students across Canada transform their projects into short, digital videos as part of the Young Citizens program. Since 2012, over 1000 student videos have been posted on the national website YoungCitizens.ca / JeunesCitoyens.ca. Combining creativity, research and passion for storytelling, our Young Citizens provide a fresh take on history.
