Each of our SHAD host campuses offers an immersive program of lectures, workshops, projects and activities. Inside and outside the classroom, SHAD builds on a foundation of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics – or STEAM – introducing participants to a multi-disciplinary approach that offers unique experiences and a new way of understanding the world.
“It’s about stringing ideas together,” says Dr. Chad Harvey, Co-Director of SHAD McMaster. “We apply chemistry to explain biology, or math to explain music. We ask our SHAD participants to look at things from a different perspective, and this allows them to see themselves from a different perspective.”
