Lakeside Joins McMaster University's Engineering Outreach Team at the InSTEM Conference!

June 15, 2023
Mississauga, ON - We had an incredible time joining McMaster University's Engineering Outreach Team at the InSTEM Conference! Together with Six Nations Polytechnique (SNP), we embarked on a mission to showcase water pollution solutions to all the talented students.

In a world where climate change poses significant challenges, it's crucial to empower our youth with knowledge about sustainable practices. We were amazed by the enthusiasm and creativity the students displayed during the design challenge. They truly rose to the occasion!

Special thanks to McMaster University, Engineering Venture Academy for having us in on this day to spark curiosity and ignite imagination for the students who attended!

Our team members, Jessica Patel, Christina Bain, and Stephanie Enright, were honored to be part of this event.

We're thrilled about the bright futures that lie ahead for these incredible young minds, and we eagerly look forward to future collaborations. Together, we can make a positive impact on the world and foster a sustainable future!
