Plus de 20 Shads se retrouvent parmi les finalistes à l’Expo-sciences pancanadienne
Moins de deux mois avant Shad 2019, 500 des jeunes esprits les plus brillants du Canada se sont rendus à l’Expo-sciences pancanadienne de cette année à Fredericton—leurs valises remplies à craquer de solutions STIAM créatives à certains des plus importants problèmes au monde.
Tout comme Shad, l’Expo-sciences pancanadienne attire la jeunesse animée par une passion envers les STIAM et l’entrepreneuriat.
Among all the talent, there were new Shads who will attend the program this summer and Shad Fellows whose projects were inspired and developed during the real-world design challenge. More than 20 Shads were finalists at the competition.
Shad offers a special award to intermediate finalists from rural or remote areas who embody Shad values through their thought leadership, initiative and strong enthusiasm for STEAM.
Initially, only two winners were supposed to be chosen, but out of 40 applicants, three students stood apart from the rest: Amy Gudmundson, Tamara Chisholm and Penelope Armstrong will each receive an $1,000 scholarship to attend Shad 2020.
Their projects looked at: the effectiveness of flash glucose monitoring systems, water toxicity in a local river in the Northwest Territories and water quality variances in Iqaluit.
