Race to a Cure x AlumNav University Webinar

August 2020

Race to a Cure partnered with AlumNav, a federally registered not-for-profit corporation offering free high school counselling and mentorship in Summer 2020. Together, we provided a two-day webinar featuring a Schulich Scholar and undergraduate students in the general sciences, health science, engineering, business, and computer science fields.

The Socioeconomic Effects of
SARS-CoV-2 on Canadian Youth

October 2020

In 2020, Race to a Cure released a research study investigating the immediate effects of the pandemic on the youth demographic under two main categories: economic and social. The study’s data was collected via a randomized and anonymous google form survey, polling 105 Canadian students. Through the study, we mapped trends in productivity and anxiety regarding job prospects in Canadian students.

COVID-19 Visualizations

September 2020

Seeing the general lack of knowledge surrounding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, Race to A Cure’s pandemic visualization taskforce conducted an extensive review of current information available on various topics of interest. The team investigated the availability of medical resources in Canadian hospitals, the correlating, testing and reporting of cases, and chronic illness patient protection. Collected datasets are presented in visual formats.

Stories of the Pandemic Youth

Ongoing

Stories of the Pandemic Youth (SPY) is a form of Oral History, a primary source “preserving and interpreting people and communities’ voices and memories in past events,” according to the Oral History Association. SPY is a mix of a casual conversation (with planned responses) whose audio is overlaid with relevant media such as photos, videos, and music. Interested? The project is currently on-going, and we would love to have you partake!

OPPORTUNITIES

STEMx

April 2021

STEMx is a five-day long camp hosted in April 2021 geared towards students from grades seven to nine. During the camp, students get the opportunity to participate in engaging STEM workshops, learn from industry professionals, and expand their knowledge concerning health issues. The first four of the five days each focus on a specific area of STEM, where students work on case studies with experienced mentors and their fellow peers. Students will present their work to their parents and other campers on the last day: presentation day. Sign ups are open now, and we would love to have you as a camper!
