Student News at U of T
The hardest part was getting started.
The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s aUToronto team, a group of undergraduate and graduate students selected to compete in the international Autodrive Challenge, is heading to its first competition in Yuma, Ariz. beginning on April 30. There they will be judged on their work converting a Chevrolet Bolt EV – which they’ve dubbed Zeus – into a self-driving car.
The University of Toronto is offering its condolences to the victims of the devastating van attack near Yonge Street and Finch Avenue that’s being dubbed the country’s worst mass killing in nearly 30 years.
U of T President Meric Gertler tweeted Monday evening he was saddened by the “horrific” attack that occurred just hours earlier when a rental van jumped a curb and drove into pedestrians on a busy stretch of Yonge Street, leaving a trail of carnage in its wake and an entire city in shock.
Jane Goodall at U of T: 'The forest needs people to defend it desperately. The chimpanzees need people to defend them'
Primatologist Jane Goodall came to the University of Toronto over the weekend to mark Earth Day with a discussion about her life, work and the need to protect the planet.
In front of a sold-out audience at Convocation Hall, she recalled her adventures at Gombe Stream Game Reserve (now a national park) and the observations of wild chimpanzees starting in the 1960s. Her eyewitness accounts and analysis of chimp behaviour – their use of tools and their complex social structures – changed people's understanding of their closest cousins.
