It was a celebration of science as fourth semester medical students at the Saint James School of Medicine in St. Vincent got a jumpstart on their medical school research requirements when they conducted original research projects. It was part of their Research in Health and Medicine (RHM 3) course requirements and students explored a variety of topics in their research from depression to weightlessness. Six projects in total were developed by student teams under the supervision of three faculty mentors.

On Science Day, student teams delivered 12-minute oral presentations, and displayed their digital posters on-screen during the three-minute Q&A sessions that followed. Nine faculty judges determined the winners as follows:
