I am a research assistant for Discovery.
On the program delivery side, I work closely with the Logistics Director to formalize the program in preparation for the scale-up and expansion in the upcoming years.
On the research side, I am interested in exploring the higher-level outcomes of an inquiry-based learning platform; comparing the differences in outcome between mandatory curriculum-based S.T.E.M programs and voluntary outreach S.T.E.M activities.
I will be starting my Master of Global Affairs (MGA) program in the Fall at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at UofT. I completed my undergrad in Political Science at UofT.
Sukhmani is a research assistant for Discovery. She is going into her 3rd year of Undergraduate degree, majoring in Economics and minoring in Mathematics and Statistics.
Her research work focuses on online inquiry-based learning targeted at high school and early undergraduate students, in addition to studying how high schools and universities are navigating the shift to an online mode of delivery for the Fall. She also works alongside the Programming Director to analyze student data and crunch the numbers.
Having shifted from a STEM background to social sciences, she is excited to work with a program like Discovery that recognizes the importance of STEM-based projects and programming in high schools.
