Spring 2022 Expo

Spring 2022 Expo

Welcome to our Spring 2022 Expo! Our Spring 2022 Expo will be held in person at Halton Arena for the first time in 3 years from 11am to 3pm. For those of you who cannot come to the Expo in person, we have created a virtual venue for our first and second semester students to show their work. For First Semester (SD1) students, you will see their posters via a narrated presentation. For Second semester (SD2) students, they also have narrated posters, plus project videos that they prepared to show the work they have done during their two semesters. At the live Expo, we will have an awards ceremony starting at 2:30pm to announce the winners of the SD1 Best Project, SD2 Best Project Video (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) and SD2 Best Project (1st, 2nd and 3rd place). We will post the results here after the in-person Expo. I hope you enjoy the Expo whether you are attending live or virtually and I thank you for your interest in our program. If you are interested in participating with a project for the Fall 2022 semester. Please contact me to discuss.
