Happy New Year!

We kicked off 2019 with an inspiring chat with professors George Paravantes & Dennis Kappen about the groundbreaking augmented reality project they worked on with a student team last summer. Then, we focused on the great outdoors with Early Childhood Education professor Louise Zimanyi, to learn more about the Forest and Nature Program she helped create, and the research she’s done into the program’s impact.

Stay tuned! We’ve plenty more stories of innovative initiatives and projects at Humber College that we can’t wait to share with you.
