Nikola Tesla Educational Corporation (NTEC) is a not-for profit corporation, that is a Registered Charity in accordance with the Income Tax Act of Canada.
We have successfully raised the necessary fund to rename a major roadway in Hamilton, Ontario Canada to Nikola Tesla Blvd. Now daily a quarter of a million travelers see the name as they drive on one of Canada’s busiest highways. Thousands more hear the name as part of traffic reports daily.
August 26, 2018, was marked with our largest Festival to date. This was a celebration of the 120th Anniversary of the arrival of Hydro to Hamilton. This achievement defined both the city of Hamilton and Canada as a progressive society. One that has the power to produce and improve the standard of living for its residents.
Even with our accomplishments, we have much more to achieve. The City of Hamilton as part of the Public Art master Plan 2016-2023, has approve a public art project that will feature Nikola Tesla. The title of the project is ‘Hamilton the Electric City, Nikola Tesla and the 5 Johns.’ This will be a major project. The location has been selected, which is ideally located by a busy waterfront trail right adjacent to the Nikola Tesla Blvd exit off the Queen Elizabeth Way.

September 2018 – 2st Nikola Tesla Scholarship awarded, to Samuel Cymbaluk – from Hamilton
Samuel addressed the Gala and explained the process that he went through to receive the scholarship. This is one of the most valued scholarships at McMaster University. At first he did not believe that his filed of studies qualified for the scholarship. Upon researching Nikola Tesla work, he discovered that Computer that his field of computer science is based on Nikola Tesla work and in fact Tesla was the first to use and demonstrate the binary code when he demonstrated the remote controlled boat. Samuel’s scholarship is worth $10,000 in total and is paid out over 3 years. We at NTEK are proud to support the future inventors and those that will build on and expand Nikola Tesla technology. Congratulations Samuel.
Proceed from GALA support PUBLIC ART PROJECT – titled “Hamilton the Electric city, Nikola Tesla and the 5 Johns”
All proceed from the Gala will go to support the Public Art Project. Just imagine, sitting on a bench next to the Public Art that helps visitors to understand, Nikola Tesla role in the industrialization of Hamilton, and how his inventions defined both Hamilton and Canada.
Above example of a Public Art Project in Stoney Creek at King St & Jones Rd.
We have a great opportunity to entrench Nikola Tesla in the History of Hamilton, by way of the Nikola Tesla inspired Public Art Project with the city of Hamilton and NTEC funding the project on a 50/50 basis.
Educating our students
NTEC president regularly attend school to make presentation to students. One of the student favorite elements is the Tesla Coil demostration. Students are hooked on Tesla when they hold a florescent light in their hand and see it light up with no wires. It is magical. A demonstration similar to Nikola Tesla own demonstration in 1891.
