FALL 2022

Shad summer recap

More than 1000 students hopped on planes, trains and buses to get to their Shad campuses this summer. And the result? Resounding satisfaction from participants and parents alike. One Shad told us, “I feel like I have a new family of like-minded people who I love deeply and wish to have forever.”

Shad's Northern Adventure

Last week we were in Cambridge Bay, NU participating in the Makiagiaqta STEM Careers Camp. We worked with youth from Nunavut who are interested in science and held a hands-on workshop and STEM activities.
We also stopped in Yellowknife to connect with Shad Alumni to share memories and think about future opportunities with Northern youth.
