Every summer 1,000 trailblazing students spend 27-days at a Canadian university in seminars, labs and hands-on learning. Oh, did we mention Shad is life-altering?Why Shad?
Shad’s signature design project. Design a prototype that solves a social issue in 27-days. Beyond the obvious thrill of this project, some provinces offer a full credit for participating in Shad’s program.About Shad
There are 18,000 Shads across Canada. From rural and remote regions, suburbs and the downtown core, it is not about where Shads come from but what their passion is fuelling.
Shads across North America are leading businesses, making discoveries, innovating and using STEAM as a force for good. Meet the Shads making a difference.
"Shad is an ingenious program that more Canadians need to know about. I wouldn’t start a university today without experiential learning for every student. The reason is, it combines theory and practice."The Right Honourable David Johnston, 28th Governor General of Canada
