We are excited to announce that on May 3, we received the Resilient Communities Fund grant ($45,300) from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The grant will help us build portable videography and livestreaming studio kits that can be loaned to our volunteer instructors so they can work on developing our existing STEM activities and demonstrations into digital video form for use in future outreach and training programs. It will also help us create engaging contents for our social media channels.
We have now trained over 30 youth from the University of Toronto to take part in this project. The equipments that we’ve purchased has been used to deliver better quality online classes for grade 9 students in indigenous communities.
