TASTE Lunch 2015
TASTE by the Career Centre provides York students with an opportunity to talk face to face with a York alumna/us about their career-related interests. The program pairs two students with a York graduate over an informal lunch setting during which the alumna/us shares information about their job, industry, and organization while students gain inside information and inspiration from someone who’s been there. This year we have Nama Vythilingum, a Pharmaceutical Sales Associate from GlaxoSmithKline, as our TASTE Biology alumnus. This lunch session will happen on Friday February 27th, 2015.
Please visit TASTE to apply for this great opportunity to speak with an alumnus in your field of study! If you are concerned about not having the prerequisite, it is suggested that you apply anyway and we can prepare them in person or over the phone in advance.
Data Collection Assistant
Want to get paid $540 for 40 hours as a Data Collection Assistant? We’re looking for multiple Data Collection Assistants for one full week in March during weekdays from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Min. 8 hours over two days). This job involves printing, organizing, filing, storing, labelling, and transcribing materials related to the data collection process. Familiarity with the science buildings on campus is necessary. Please direct all inquiries to our email (email@example.com).
Project START (Students, Teachers, and Researchers Teach) Science! sparks and keep aflame the excitement of public school children for science/STEM. Science students at York are coordinating this program.
The program entails groups of undergraduate students leading hands-on science modules for a class of elementary school students. The hands-on activities are conducted with one “START Leader” at each table of 3-4 students, allowing for more individualized attention. We have multiple classes running in parallel instead of just one class. The modules are all in STEM related fields, including Biology, Physics, Engineering, Health, Neuroscience and Chemistry.
The kids conduct electroplating experiments, bacterial growth cultures, cyanoacrylate fingerprint development, and many other activities, learning the science behind these exciting hands-on projects. InsideToronto.com featured us in an article engaging young students in science experiments.
