Shad Valley is a
month-long summer enrichment program based at twelve university campuses
across Canada. It is focused on the sciences, technology and
entrepreneurship. Throughout most of the program, participants work
together in groups to design a product based around a theme common to
all campuses. This year's theme is "Design with Conscience".
Conscience" is all about using scientific and technological innovations,
along with entrepreneurship, to create a solution to important issues
such as starvation, poverty, lack of education or homelessness. The
solution can target either developed or developing countries.
Out of all the projects showcased at
the Shad Valley Université Laval campus this July, Grexum Group's was chosen
to move on to the national competition, the RBC/Shad Cup. Throughout
August, Grexum Group will work to improve and develop their project. The
final submission will be presented to a panel of judges, and awards will
take place in October.
This is an
excellent chance to be part of a revolutionary solution. The website you
design will help spread awareness about an important social concern, and
will also be an important component of the project itself. From a
business perspective, the RBC/Shad Cup is an opportunity to give your
name and/or company national exposure.
