Osum is inspired by youth. We believe that the young scientists, innovators and design-thinkers of tomorrow will fulfill the promise of the future – so we’re thrilled when we get the opportunity to do stuff that unleashes their creativity on the world.
That’s the reason we wanted something really inspiring – something that would leave students with skills they could take with them for the rest of their lives – to kick off our partnership with the Cold Lake High School Science Team this year.
So we started by asking the science teachers what they needed, and based on their response, we were able to provide funding to outfit the science labs at the new High School with lots of equipment.
But that was just the beginning. Thanks to the incredible team of science teachers, we were able to put a lot of people together and organize the “Osum Science of Innovation & Sport Challenge.” For this event, two time Olympic gold medalist Catriona Le May Doan and innovation experts Larry Shubert and Scott Underwood were brought in to lead the students through an incredible action packed two days of innovation, inspiration and science.
