Throughout the month of July, the Lassonde School of Engineering has been host to SHAD York, a program that offers 56 high-school students from across Canada the chance to enjoy an outstanding experiential education experience at York University.

SHAD York takes advantage of more than 20 York faculty, the innovation ecosystem in York Region and the GTA, and all that Lassonde’s BEST Lab has to offer, to provide the next generation of changemakers an extraordinary experience in science, engineering, art and mathematics skills.

The program team is hosting an Open Day on July 25 for University community members. Students will share the projects they have been working on during the program and discuss the lessons they’ve learned during their one-month experiential education journey. The event runs from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Second Student Centre, 15 Library Lane, Keele Campus. Light refreshments will be served.
