Orientation day

Sophy Wu from Toronto takes part in an orientation event for SHAD participants at Lakehead University on Monday.

Lakehead University welcomed 65 young people from across Canada who are taking part in SHAD this month at the university.

The SHAD program emphasizes science, technology, art and math — known as the STEAM subjects — for students in grades 10, 11 or 12.

“I am really looking forward to how girls can play a significant role in the program,” Sophy Wu, from Toronto, told The Chronicle-Journal.

Wu is interested in a career in environmental science and said the STEAM subjects will give her insights into the career field she is interested in.
