Afterschool STEAM at MUN

Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is pleased to report that we will be offering our virtual Afterschool STEAM sessions again this fall. They have been rather popular over the past year, and we are delighted to keep them going. Sessions are designed for students ages 8-11 and are set for October 6, 13, 20 and 27 from 3:45pm – 4:45pm. A device with an internet connection and the ability to join our live WebEx calls will be required. Although there will be some materials required from home, our team is preparing some kits for participants that will help with some of the supplies needed. Registration is free, but spaces are limited. We will be opening our online registration on Friday, September 24 at 12:00pm. The registration link is currently under construction, but will be available from our Upcoming Events page…

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Student Vote 2021

Today is the day of the Federal Election, and a number of our students and classes took part in the Student Vote that was happening all across the country.

This is a great way to learn about democracy in Canada! Here, some of our LEARN students cast their vote.

The results of the national Student Vote will be released in the next few days, and we will compare that to the election results in our District and across the country.
