SUD­BURY STU­DENTS DE­VELOP REAL-WORLD IDEAS

The Sudbury Star - - FRONT PAGE -

Mary­mount Academy stu­dents Grace Til­bury, Molly Ta­mura, Alysha Vil­leneuve, Au­drea Brosseau, Jenna Mc­Don­ald, Em­i­lie Dupuis and Jane Vas work on their idea board at the In­no­va­tion, Creativity and En­trepreneur­ship Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion (ICE Event) on Wed­nes­day. Mary­mount Academy part­nered with the Mai­son Mc­Cul­loch Hos­pice for the event in which 375 stu­dents worked col­lab­o­ra­tively in small groups to come up with pos­si­ble so­lu­tions to the prob­lem pre­sented, as­sist­ing the Mai­son Mc­Cul­loch Hos­pice in a real-world case study. At the end of the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the stu­dents pre­sented their so­lu­tions to hos­pice staff, who will then adopt the pre­ferred so­lu­tions. The en­tire stu­dent pop­u­la­tion from Mary­mount Academy will be com­plet­ing the ICE cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. This will be the first time that a group of this size will be cer­ti­fied through this pro­gram. The ICE Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion was cre­ated by the Rot­man School of Man­age­ment as part of the Spe­cial­ist High Skills Ma­jor Pro­gram (SHSM). SHSM pro­grams are funded by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion and al­low Grade 11 and 12 stu­dents to se­lect courses that focus on a spe­cific eco­nomic sec­tor.
