Korah student, robotics wiz, to join other teens for Canada-wide, virtual event
‘I would love to do something that makes an impact on the world,’ says Shail Giroux
Having already made his mark in robotics with a bright future ahead of him, Shail Giroux, a Korah Collegiate Grade 11 student, has been chosen to participate with a select group of high school students across the country in Shad Canada’s virtual ShadOnline 2021 program this summer.
Normally, Shad Canada students take part in a 27-day program at a Canadian university in classrooms, labs and in hands-on learning.
There, inspired by keynote speakers, students are given a problem to work on, brainstorming with each other, mentored by university instructors and professionals in several fields (such as robotics and environmental science), and formulate a solution to a real world, global problem.
Due to COVID-19, ShadOnline 2021 will be held virtually from July 5 to 30, students participating in synchronous, real-time sessions.
There will be 16 online campuses involved in the program this year.
