Hi-Skule is back with our 10th annual University of Toronto High School Design Competition. Our vision is to inspire young adults to pursue careers and opportunities in the STEM fields. High school students get an opportunity to learn about the engineering design process by solving an engineering issue. Students will have the chance to work in teams to solve the problem.
Hi-Skule’s UTHSDC will take place on Sunday, November 26 in the Bahen Centre for Information Technology,40 St George St, Toronto, ON M5S 2E4, from 9 am - 4:45 pm. Students are required to purchase a ticket of $15.00 that will go towards the purchase of snacks and activities for the event. This event is welcome to all current high school students. Students are encouraged to form teams of 3 to 5 for the competition. If you are signing up individually, we will help you find a team for the competition.
