Fun with Molecules

Below is a picture of Max Finch, a grade 12 biology student, and a molecule that he and some fellow classmates built. If Max is looking tired, perhaps it was the 'energy' he required to build the complex molecule that is ATP.

The award ceremony for the York University High School Biophysics contest was held on Friday June 15th at the Life Science Building at York. Danforth knew going in that we had some students in the top 5, but what we didn't know was that we took first and second place along with an honorable mention. Pictured below are Abiali B. (first place) and Ajwad K. (second place) with their certificates. Missing are Maya T. (second place with Ajwad) and Saskia R-S. and Annie D. (honorable mention).

Abiali and Ajwad award

After the award ceremony the students got a tour of some of the facilities at York including the observatory and the antimatter lab. Pictured below are Ajwad and Abiali in the lab.

Danforth is now 2 for 2 in this competition and we are looking forward to the next installment in two years time (unfortunately York does not have enough funds to run the competition annually).  Well done!

Danforth Students Attend TKSummit

TK Summit 1

 

Danforth students; Rosmeeah, Mikhail, Lana and Subha attended the TKSummit last weekend on Toronto’s waterfront.

“Take action right now, get a head start into life and take a route that isn’t conventional. This was the message that they really pushed in TKSummit 2018. This conference was a day full of networking, inspiring speakers and idea sharing. We were able to listen to speakers that work for the most influential and powerful companies in the world. We were able to hear what they see as the future and how they personally got into these companies and what they are doing right now. Some of the great ideas came from  speakers from companies such as Facebook, where they created Facebook spaces. The designers integrated VR and create avatars so they were able to connect with people even more. Almost all of the presentations had AI integrated in it. Another point  most of the speakers said was that technological advances used to be growing linearly, but now it’s the age where it grows exponentially.”
