Sparkin' STEM 2021

Project-Blast-Off

Sparkin' STEM a été présentés pour la deuxième fois en novembre 2019, et on peut dire que nous avons certainement progressé dans la bonne direction pour inciter les enfants à explorer et à s’intéresser au monde des STIM. En 2019, au centre ville de Brampton, 120 participants de partout dans le GTA se sont penchés dans le monde des STIM au moyen de divers ateliers interactifs et d’activités pratiques.

Forensic Face-Off 

Forensic Face-Off, held on August 5th 2021, was a 2-hour event focusing on the attempted murder of business entrepreneur, Castillo. Participants put their detective skills to the test by learning and engaging in a realistic simulation of a forensics case. 

 

The event had 5 workshops each which helped participants to narrow down their list of 5 suspects, and prosecute the criminal. The workshops focused on fingerprint analysing, blood type sequencing, etc! There were a total of 3 crime scenes in which participants looked for clues, and learned how to apply science/math skills to the real world. Overall, the event was a blast and the hard work from the Sparkin’ STEM executive team paid off!


 

Forensics Face-Off's Impact:

  • 36 Participants

  • 60 Total Executive members and participants involved

  • Prize value = $80 ( With certificates given out to participants)

 

On behalf of the Sparkin’ STEM Team, thank you to all of our spectacular participants, we hope to see you for our next event which is going to be even bigger and better than this one!

Franco STIM Recap

The grade 7-8 students at Jeunes Sans Frontières had the opportunity to participate in our program, Franco-STIM. Two exciting workshops were attended by 45 students, of whom 24 were girls. 

 

An engaging math murder mystery workshop was presented to students in seventh grade. Students were put in groups of 5-6 to solve a series of math clues and solve the murder mystery. Furthermore, eighth grade students had the opportunity to learn about mitosis and cancer cells in an engaging and interactive way.
