faculty to celebrate the nation's newest innovators at the RBC/Shad
During Shad Valley's Canada-wide summer program for Canada's next
generation of leaders, students developed new innovations around the theme
Zero-Waste Technology in a start-up simulation that encouraged them to use
their abundant talents to solve an important global issue.
Last July, 600+ high school students from across Canada participated in
Shad Valley, enjoying a month at one of 12 leading universities in an
environment that fostered entrepreneurship, science and innovation. The
12 projects being recognized this week represent leading-edge thought and
research, and showcase new ideas for addressing the theme of Zero Waste.
