The closing event for the 2020.2021 program was held in August 2021
The event consisted of a keynote talk from physics alumni Julius Lindsay and students presented their Capstone Projects.
For their projects, students were asked to use their Arduinos and what they learned through activities from the various physical sciences to develop a tool, gadget or technology to aid in their survival and/or to make living through a pandemic easier. The winning groups designed a “smart mask” and a “re-fill itself water bottle” and they will present their results at the Canadian Black Scientist Network conference in January 2022.
