Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

FY: Is your son intrigued by changes in the modern world?

Waterloo Unlimited is a Canada-wide enrichment program for students of exceptional potential. High school students will experience lectures, seminars, workshops, labs and social time with faculty and students on campus at the University of Waterloo. Foundation Year students are invited to apply for a program examining the notion of change: technological change, social change, political change, environmental change. In modern times, humankind has experienced an unprecedented rapidity of change. How do we adapt or not adapt, and what are the consequences? Students will consider the perspectives of scientists, engineers, writers, and philosophers as they examine the dynamics of change. This is perfect training for the IB Theory of Knowledge course!

The program runs from Sunday, May 15 to Thursday, May 19. The program fee (including meals) is $500 and supervised shared residence accommodation is available for $160. Applications are due by March 9. More details are available here.
