At Dalewood and Dr. Davey schools, 50 students will get to build a simulation satellite, a simple version of the Mars Rover, and plan a zoo. How cool is that?
But it won’t be in science or any other regular class. It’ll happen in the emerging after-school program Mathstronauts — founded in 2012 by McMaster University students Sehrish Zehra, studying medical science, and Richard Hamilton, taking biomedical engineering.
The program has been offered at Dalewood middle school in Westdale but this year expanded to Dr. Edgar Davey elementary in the inner city.
Its gofundme description says it is helping to “bridge a gap that ripples Canada’s education system”.
