About Team Canada-MILSET 2023

MILSET Expo-Sciences International (ESI) is a weeklong international youth STEM project exhibition, bringing together 800 young scientists from all over the world, with a focus on communication, cooperation, networking, and sociocultural interchange, rather than competition.

In addition to the project expo, the participant program includes cultural and scientific visits, leisure activities, workshops, presentations, lectures, as well as opportunities for youth to address global STEM-related issues. National youth STEM program leaders meet during the event to share and discuss best practice in STEM promotion and education.

MILSET ESI is held every two years. The next event will be held in Puebla, Mexico from October 21-27, 2023.

Please note, the location for MILSET ESI has moved from Mazatlán to Puebla. More information about this change can be found here.

The estimated cost per participant is $2,350, including return airfare from Montreal, accommodation, meals, program, and team identity materials. Youth Science Canada will coordinate registration and travel, and will coordinate the selection of adult supervision for the delegation. Chaperones must be at least 26 years of age on October 21, 2023 to be eligible to apply. Please note that selected participants are responsible for organizing and paying for their own travel to and from the Montreal airport.
