StFX honours physics students Michael Kinach and Thomas Faour took three of the prizes at the Science Atlantic Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy Conference held Feb. 3-5, 2017 at the University of Prince Edward Island.  

Thomas Faour won the ACENET prize for computational physics applied to the study of materials.

Michael Kinach won both the Students' Choice Award and the Tindall-Steinitz Best Paper Award, which was presented to him by StFX physics professor Dr. Michael Steinitz.

The Best Paper Award is named after David Tindall of Dalhousie University and Dr. Steinitz of StFX for their longstanding contributions to the physics community of Atlantic Canada.

Dr. Steinitz also presented the Science Atlantic Communications Award, which is sponsored by the Canadian Journal of Physics (of which he is the editor) and Canadian Science Publishing, which publishes the Canadian Journal of Physics.
