Sixteen Surrey students have been selected from more than 1,000 applicants across Canada to participate in the Shad Valley program in July.

The students chosen are Lily Che, Akshiv Bansal, Roshan Gill and Michael Wang of Semiahmoo Secondary, Larissa Chen of Pacific Academy, Tessa Morin of North Surrey Secondary, Avineet Randhawa, Peishan Huang, Shervin Yousef-Zadeh and Huaqi Li of Fraser Heights Secondary, Chris Zhu of Fleetwood Park Secondary, Kevin Wang and Jane Peng of Elgin Park Secondary, Kiran Mann of École Panorama Ridge Secondary, and Ryan Unger and Harry Xu of Earl Marriott Secondary.

The participants will spend a month living in residence at one of 10 host universities across the country, converging in an atmosphere centred on fusing innovation, entrepreneurship, science and technology. Through lectures, workshops and team-building activities run by university faculty and industry leaders, they will be exposed to advanced topics not regularly featured in high school curriculum.
