Local high school students get creative in online workshop with Lakehead prof

April 30, 2020 - Orillia, Ont.

Grade 11 students in Jeff Cole's environmental science class at Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School are continuing to get hands-on Let's Talk Science programming through a unique partnership with Lakehead University professor Chris Murray, associate professor in the departments of sustainability sciences and physics.

In partnership with Cole, Murray has developed a way to keep high school students engaged while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Using materials they find at home students carry out a weekly experiment, following a lesson given through a Zoom session by Murray and his student assistants from Lakehead.
