SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER, ON – December 4, 2020- As part of the ongoing COVID-19 public health situation, many colleges and universities have launched online learning platforms for students learning from home during the pandemic. Students and educators themselves are working to adjust to a different school life environment as they begin to settle into a new routine. The Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) in partnership with Six Nations Polytechnic is providing students at the Six Nations Polytechnic (SNP) STEAM Academy with renewable energy related supplies and resources to support their at home learning.
In response to the ongoing public health situation, SNP has committed to providing learning to their students both in person and online, depending on the needs of specific students and their families. Students who are currently learning online have had their learning enhanced. “We are very thankful to the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation, and their past Community Collaborators for their generous use of these renewable energy supplies,” said Zandra Bear-Lowen, SNP STEAM Academy Principal. “The supplies will allow our students to feel truly engaged in their online learning and encourage them to keep learning and experimenting.”
SNP STEAM Academy will be continuing to conduct online learning in the coming months, ensuring that students receive the highest quality of education and personal support, regardless of if they are in the school or online. Currently the SNP STEAM Academy is operating on a quadmester system, allowing the students to focus on two courses at a time instead of the usual four. Students and their families can register online for the next intake of students at the SNP STEAM Academy, which will take place at the start of the next quadmester on February 8th, 2021.
