Meet the Research Matters Student Ambassadors

If you’re wondering who the poetry reciters are in the teaser video for the Research Matters Virtual Scavenger Hunt, they are students from across the province who have agreed to volunteer as Ambassadors for Research Matters. They are undergrads and graduate students, from a range of disciplines.

You’ll see those same faces (and many more) throughout the course of of the hunt – all the video clues are delivered by Research Matters Ambassadors.

We are so delighted to be working with this group of students. In addition to sharing a passion for communicating research, they are imaginative, creative and fun. If you’re on an Ontario university campus and want to find out more about research happening at your institution and at many others, you could do worse than to make contact with your local ambassador.

If you don’t know how to contact them directly, send Research Matters a note at RMAmbassadors@cou.on.ca
