Event Details

The Pilot Program for high school student participation in the academic research of their choice has been developed with the Student Success and Learning to 18 Department of the Ontario Ministry of Education. It gives senior high school students much sought-after opportunities to work with the leading national scientists and motivates them with attainable achievements recognised as high school credits and by academic community. It supports students’ transition from school into postsecondary institutes with a focus on 21st century careers in science and technology.

The Ontario Ministry of Education pilots the Program at six representative schools (urban and rural; Catholic and Public; Anglophone and Francophone) staring September 2013. The Journal organizes mentorship for grade 11 and 12 Ontario students, connecting them with professionals and academics from the database of the
Federal Science and Technology Cluster.

The Pilot Program’s focus on innovation will attract a new group of students interested in reaching ahead into science and technology professions through experiential learning. It will spark a new interest in science and technology careers, will teach telecommuter work skills, e-etiquette, work safety on the Internet, electronic professional communication, problem solving and data analysis.

Its cyber format eliminates the necessity for a commute and permits mentoring according to the
Ministry of Education Virtual Co-op model for cases when the desired Research co-op placement opportunities are not accessible due to geographical restrictions of either the student or the mentor. It can be offered as one credit course that fits well into the busy timetables of senior high school students, including those who participate in special programs like Specialist High Skills Major, TOPS and others.
