Bermudian secondary school students foster passion for science and technology

Studying abroad is enticing, but the thought of leaving your family and friends to pursue your post-secondary education in another country can be intimidating. What will university life be like in a foreign country? What learning opportunities will you have? A total of 29 secondary students from two different Bermudian schools recently had a chance to explore these questions and more during their visit to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

Against the wind: Bermudian students visit campus, learn about sailing physics

Students from two secondary schools in Bermuda recently enjoyed a fun afternoon at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology learning about this as they explored sailing physics and engineering.
