McNaughton Learning Resource Centre Grant applications

Qualified student branches are encouraged to start preparing now to submit comprehensive, well justified applications and to ensure time to arrange the three required letters of support all by the November 15 deadline. Applications that seek to create new Centres or revitalize Centres that time has passed by are especially welcome.

The Project Completion Reports were submitted for two ICF Special Grants awarded in 2012.

1. Communicate Your Research Conference was successfully organized, and hosted an audience of 100 engineering students from McGill and Concordia universities and featured renowned science communicators as invited speakers. The student participants benefited from advice on how to improve skills in communicating their research work to a broad audience, both orally and in writing. After the conference, students not involved in the summer research expressed interest in contributing to Technophilic Magazine - the student voice of science, engineering & technology, started at McGill University in 2009.

2. The robotics team "Gears of Glebe" formed of grade 9-12 high school students of Glebe Collegiate Institute in Ottawa, successfully competed in Toronto FIRST West robotics competition and Toronto VEX competition. During these competitions the students met and interacted with other students. Each student gained better understanding of engineering and more real life experiences than any classroom could provide. Team members improved their management, leadership, organization and engineering skills that will serve them in their future.
