13 Surrey students spending July in universities across Canada

Thirteen students from Surrey Schools have been selected to spend a month in Shad summer enrichment programs at various universities across Canada.

Shad Canada is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) and entrepreneurship program for students in Grades 10 and 11 that offers an opportunity for students to live on campus, attend seminars, labs and workshops, and interact with faculty and experts.

SHAD-logo.jpgThis year's group of Surrey students represents six different local secondary schools. They join about 1,000 other students from across the country who earned a Shad spot. Applicants are selected based on their well-roundedness, academics, creativity/innovation and extra-curricular involvement. Since 1984, more than 250 Surrey students have attended Shad.

In addition to meeting peers from every part of Canada, participants are asked to develop a plan and prototype that solves a real-world issue. This year, students have been tasked with creating an original and impactful product to help Canadians reduce their waste.

Near the end of the program, Shad participants will display their projects during an event held at each campus on July 25.
