Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 8:30am

This was the team’s end-of-semester project for Happy City, a mini trade show in the classroom that is attended by guest organizations. Instructor, Teresa Ascencao explains, “when visiting their booth, Metrolinx was impressed and invited the students to share their innovation with a dozen of their executives and managers. It was inspiring to experience the students presenting and be taken seriously. I know these moments shape their self-confidence and future success as change-makers and designers.” Presto X-Change Initiative offers rider discounts for their charitable donations.
