Pueblo Science and the Impact Centre would like to invite you to take part in the inaugural Hackathon for Science Education, taking place September 21-22 at the University of Toronto (ONRamp, 100 College Street, Toronto). This event will bring together more than 100 innovative students with mentor scientists, engineers, and educators. The students and mentors will work together for 22 hours (with an overnight break) to create science kits that are relevant to the curriculum and everyday life of high school students in low-resource communities around the world.
The event provides a fun and engaging opportunity for alumni and students to become leaders, builders, and innovators and to have an impact on education around the world. It also aims to enable teachers to introduce hands-on science experiences into science classes and improve students’ attitudes towards science learning, concept uptake and problem solving.
