Between October 2017 and March 2018 we will be conducting a series of one-day youth events for Grade 8-10 students in Western, Central and Eastern Canada.
Each event will bring together approximately 300 students to shape the Canada 2067 Learning Framework and explore the future of work, innovation, discovery and learning.
Kicking off each event will be a ‘marathon of mentors’ – a series of dynamic speakers who will each deliver short pitches about the future of their field with the goal of “recruiting” teen audience members to choose their field of interest/industry for their future careers.
In addition to STEM professionals at each event, one or two youth speakers will share their own STEM experiences, demonstrating their passion and achievements. Subsequent breakout sessions are in development to support authentic youth involvement in shaping the vision and action plan for the future of STEM learning.
