Be sure to check out the website that was developed on the MACgyver workshops from Summer 2016 to encourage undergraduates to learn research related skills. The workshop series was a great success and the students were very enthusiastic about it. It was great to have the support of the PetroCanada Young Innovators Award to make this happen.
The website includes all the materials used in each session, and a video synopsis of each lesson, including highlights from the student participants in each “mission” (under the missions) tab. The team was led by Dr. Ayse Turak, the founding mission director of the MACgyver group for the Phoenix foundation. Her team members include Fariha Husain, Erin Van Wynsberghe, Bertha Hui, Chris Mitchelitis, Peter Jonasson, and Allison Hamilton.
It can all be found at http://macgyver.mcmaster.ca
We hope you enjoy it!
