High School Summer AI Program by Stanford PhD Students
AI Scholars Live Online is a 10-session (25 hours) pre-college enrichment program that exposes high school students (Grades 9-12) to fundamental AI concepts and guides them to build a socially impactful project. Taught by our team of graduate students from Stanford University and MIT, students receive a personalized, interdisciplinary learning experience with a student-teacher ratio of 4:1. Students with prior programming experience are placed in an advanced cohort. We offer multiple dates and times for our Spring Semester and Summer Break programs.

Engineers Canada has released a new report outlining projections of the expected supply and demand of engineers in Canada through to 2025. The report, Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025, provides provincial-level breakdowns of the number of engineers currently working, the average age of engineers in different fields, and the projected need for engineers to fill vacated positions. The report suggests that recent engineering graduates will not be able to replace retiring senior engineers; inter-provincial mobility of senior engineers and the immigration of international engineers will be necessary to fill these positions. The report also recommends that traditionally underrepresented groups such as women and Aboriginal peoples will be needed in the engineering workforce.
