The Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute of Mount Sinai Hospital has been engaging youth with science outreach activities for 15 years. Their outreach programs were established in 1997 to promote science to students throughout the GTA. The goal of their programs is to show students how awesome science is and to teach students to be curious. They aim to encourage students to retain science course options throughout their academic careers and ultimately to consider science as a career.
This year they were fortunate to be hosting the fourth annual Science Fair for all GTA students attending Grades 7 or 8 on Thursday March 6. Projects for our Science Fair had to be health or biomedical related. Of the 28 students chosen, 5 were from Mentor College. Ethan Coles, Donovan Mills, Victoria Meola, Michaela Schnull and Jesse Chang. We are happy to acknowledge the following results from the fair:
Ethan Coles – 3rd (Grade 7)
Michaela Schnull – 2nd (Grade 8)
