Keynote Speakers

Professor Emily Moore

Ph.D, Oxford University
B.A.Sc, Queen’s University

Professor and Academic Director of Troost ILead


Professor Emily Moore is currently the Director of Troost ILead. Starting her career at the Xerox Research Centre of Canada, Prof Moore learned a great deal about leading teams and developing new products, becoming a manager and Principal Engineer. At her next company, Hatch, she led international teams to develop new product and service offerings and to deliver major projects, first as the Director of Technology Development and then as Managing Director, Water. Prof Moore holds a Bachelor Degree in Engineering Chemistry from Queen’s University and completed a Doctorate in Physical Chemistry from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. In 2016 Prof Moore was recognized as one of 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining and received the SCI Canada Kalev Pugi Award. Her research interests lie in engineering leadership, engineering team dynamics and system mapping.

Skule Nite


Skule Nite is the University of Toronto’s world-famous engineering sketch comedy musical and revue. It is entirely written, created, and produced by engineering students, for engineering students.

UofT Spark Design Club


James and Yiran are co-captains of The University of Toronto Spark Design Team. This design team builds interactive displays that are displayed all around our campus. The club is run by a team of executives from various engineering disciplines who plan and design the displays. Every semester, workshops are conducted where the general members help in making amazing displays.


Day Schedule

Location

University of Toronto High School Design Competition (UTHSDC)

9:30 AM – 5:00 PM on Saturday, November 25th, 2023, in the Medical Sciences Building, University Of Toronto (Rooms: MS3154 MS3153 MS3278)

University of Toronto Highschool Design Competition Overview

Hi-Skule is excited to present the University of Toronto High School Design Competition (UTHSDC) for students in grades 9-12! UTHSDC is an amazing opportunity to work in a team to engineer a solution to a problem. No design experience is necessary as current UofT Engineering students will be guiding students through the engineering design process. The designs will then be judged by a panel of alumni and graduate students. If you have a laptop or tablet, we recommend that you bring one, but you can still participate without it. Lunch and snacks will be provided to keep you energized as you and your team design a solution!
