In May 2017, several of Canada's largest science organizations converged on Cathedral High School to immerse students in a variety of interactive science activities and demonstrations that showcased Canadian ideas and ingenuity.
The Innovation 150 expo was the grand prize of a nation-wide contest sponsored by the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics to celebrate science innovation in the classroom. Cathedral produced the winning video from dozens of entries across the country, thus earning the opportunity to host the one-of-a-kind science fair.
The one-day expo, said teacher Kristina Salciccioli, was a great way to involve students in science learning.
The activity was a hit with students, as this video shows. Said Cathedral student, Ola: “I think it’s really cool to see the potential of what we could be doing in the future.”
