Laurier to welcome Grade 10 and 11 students from across Canada for annual Shad program
Wilfrid Laurier University will be welcoming 56 Grade 10 and 11 students from across Canada to its Waterloo and Brantford campuses from July 4 to 29 as part of the Shad Laurier program. The Shad program uses its strength in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) and entrepreneurship to empower young leaders to find their passions, embrace risk, challenge themselves, find like-minded peers, work in high performance teams, and solve real-world social and economic issues.
The Shad Laurier program includes field trips, lab tours, hands-on exercises, lectures and panel discussions; an open house, alumni dinner and closing banquet; and much more.
“Participants of Shad this year are encouraged to follow their passions and engage with new and exciting concepts while being adaptive to challenging times,” said Sunny Wang, program director and associate professor in the Department of Mathematics. “We are very excited to organize a fun, safe and enriching 2022 program!”
