U of T Engineering Students’ proposals to safely replace the dangerous high school Rainbow Experiment.
Our Clinic continued its partnership with first year engineering students at the University of Toronto participating in U of T Engineering Strategies & Practice Course, and the Multidisciplinary Capstone Design Course.

The students’ findings were as follows:
