Praxis II Showcase @ Hart House
Apr 17 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

 

Students present their designs during the 2022 Praxis II Showcase at Hart House

EngSci’s Praxis II Showcase will be open to the public this year.

Registration is required for guests who are not affiliated with the course.

At the Praxis II Showcase, student teams present and demonstrate their designs to stakeholders and the general public. Attendees will be able to ask questions and talk to the teams in small group chats.

Read about a previous Praxis II Showcase in the U of T Engineering News.

Praxis II is a Year 1 course that allows Engineering Science students to refine and apply their engineering, design, and communication skills. The students are given a single challenge:

Effect a verified and validated sustainable improvement in the lived experience of a community.

Focusing on a community allows students to gain first-hand experience with the issues confronting real groups of people and to engage one-on-one with stakeholders and community representatives.

The course culminates in the public Praxis II Showcase. At the event, students share their refined understanding of their opportunity and their proposed engineering designs with a wide audience through posters, prototypes and presentations.
