Kudos to Casimir Kuzyk, SBQMI student, on making the finals of the UBC Innovation onBoardpitching competition! The finals will be held on February 8th, 2018, 6PM at the Jack Poole Hall, Robert Lee Alumni Centre. He will be presenting his inexpensive scanning electron microscope project, named the ‘aweSEM device’. He is pursuing a patent for his discovery, which is a promising advancement to medical device technology.
The event is open to the public and is an audience favourite award — everyone in the SBQMI community is encouraged to attend to cheer Casimir on! Tickets are available here.
