Astronaut Dr. Roberta Bondar chatted with students Kyla Hynes, Roncalli High School, (right) and Sheena Winsor, Lakewood Academy, following her talk at the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame symposium.


Dr. Roberta Bondar has never been afraid to ask “why” and her curiosity led her to earn a PhD and a medical degree as well as become one of Canada’s first astronauts and the first Canadian woman in space.

On May 24, at Discovery Days in Health Sciences, a group of high school students heard about Dr. Bondar’s adventures in space. Discovery Days is an event held to promote awareness in health sciences among young people. About 100 students were selected from those who applied through their schools to attend the day, which also included hands-on workshops and a career panel.
