U of T High School Design Competition

Registration is officially open for our biggest and best event of the year: the 2015 University of Toronto High School Design Competition! The competition will be held on Saturday November 28th, 2015, in the Bahen Centre for Information Technology (40 St George St), from 8:20 – 5:30pm on University of Toronto Campus!

Below are the details for the 2015 Competition, we've changed a few things since last year.

The competition is open this year to students Grades 9-12, in teams of four. (Grades 9/10s will compete against each other, vice versa for 11/12s).Teams of four will get the challenge briefing & design package one week in advance. Students will use that time to buy their materials, and come up with a design plan for when they actually get to build at the competition on November 28th. Spending limit is capped at $50CAD, which we will reimburse each team for after the competition. (Provided they bring their receipts! Materials must be brought to the competition unassembled). The design challenge this year was created by current engineering students, for potential future engineering students: we've even snuck in some concepts from our first year engineering design courses, to give students a sneak preview into concepts learned in actual engineering school!Participants will learn the basics of Python in one hour, during a fun workshop - no prior experience necessary. Students can scope out U of T Engineering's best clubs at our Opportunities Exhibition during lunch!Enjoy a keynote speech on the life an times of Engineering Design, from an acclaimed U of T Engineering Professor. Get Mentored by our all-star team of current U of T Engineering Student mentors, from a wide range of engineering disciplines. They've been hand picked to answer any and all student questions about engineering, and help give advice!A chance to win cool prizes, meet new friends in the GTA, gain some practical engineering design experience, and build connections at U of T!REGISTRATION CLOSES THURSDAY NOVEMBER 19TH, AT 5PM Tickets are $15.00, are nonrefundable, and can be purchased online this year, here!

Shad Valley Summer Program

The SHAD experience is a lifelong experience and begins with our month-long summer program, which will show you what you can achieve if you think big and pursue your extraordinary potential.

Each year, top-performing Grades 10, 11 and 12 students (Secondaire IV, V, or CEGEP 1 in Quebec) or the international equivalent, compete for a place in the month-long program, which is focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) disciplines. More than 600 students are accepted annually to participate and live in-residence on one of our host university campuses across Canada during the July program.

“SHAD is a time in your life when anything you think of can become a reality. I really believe if you go through high school without SHAD, you’re not getting the complete experience. It’s that essential. You have to go!” - Bruce Gao, SHAD '12

SHAD provides the unique opportunity to explore a university campus while still in high school, and experience higher learning in a supportive yet challenging environment. Included are lectures, seminars and workshops, presentations by industry leaders, working in teams to simulate a ‘startup’ project, and recreational activities.

The SHAD Entrepreneurship Challenge is a highlight of the program: teams of participants work together to develop a solution to a big problem by applying scientific principles to develop engineering, design and entrepreneurship projects. You will create a real life product or service, conducting market surveys, creating business plans and even engineering working prototypes. The challenge culminates in awarding of the SHAD - John Dobson Entrepreneurship Cup recognizing the top project developed during the program.

SHAD participants are also eligible for a summer volunteer internship for the month of August, immediately following the July in-residence university program.

Students who are offered a place in the program are well-rounded, emerging leaders who demonstrate their initiative, creativity and entrepreneurial flair even before attending the program. Most are high academic achievers and are also participating in extra-curricular activities. There is no cost to apply, and any student interested in participating is encouraged to submit an application. Opportunities are available for those with proven financial need, eliminating barriers to participation.

Science is Beautiful Art Competition

Beauty is in the eye of the scientist...

The 3rd Annual Science is Beautiful Competition aims to generate interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by having high school students use various forms of art to conceptualize science in unique and interesting ways! Participants, whether it be done individually or in a group, must create an original work of art that either uses a scientific concept to create the main elements of the work (e.g. freezing flowers in liquid nitrogen and photographing them as they shatter on impact), or use more conventional artistic media to represent a scientific concept in an original way (e.g. a painting or musical composition representing the Big Bang).

Works of art entered in the contest, accompanied by the descriptions and participant information (full name(s), grade and school as well as a signed consent form) must be submitted by Friday, May 29th, 2015, before 4pm.

For more information click here.

Polar Expressions Publishing Writing Contests

The young people of Canada have an outstanding ability that is often not recognized by the literary world. The creativity they are able to display through their writing can be astounding. We, at Polar Expressions Publishing, believe those youngsters should have an opportunity to share their work and see what their peers are thinking about. We want to provide that important venue so they are able to write about these things in a positive environment.

Each year we hold two contests, which are open to Canadian students in kindergarten through grade twelve. Over $10,000 is awarded in cash prizes to schools and students who participate!

There is no entry fee and no obligation to purchase anything. Summer Poetry and Short Story Entry Deadlines are coming up soon!

McMaster Brain Bee - April 9, 2015

The Brain Bee is a competition for high school students, grades 9 through 12. Students answer questions about the brain and neuroscience research. It is designed to stimulate interest and excitement about brain research.  Students study topics on memory, sleep, intelligence, emotion, perception, stress, aging, brain imaging, neurology, neurotransmitters, genetics, and brain disease (just to list a few). It is an exciting opportunity for high school students to learn about the brain and the importance of brain research. It brings the students to the university in their area to meet students and professors who are doing brain research. It is an avenue of communication, through media and students, to raise awareness of brain research in the community. It is a mechanism to attract bright young minds to the study of neuroscience. The Brain Bee is an effective recruitment tool.  Many brain bee competitors go on to study the brain because of their experience as high school competitors in the Brain Bee.
