Sridaya Srivatsan, a Grade 11 student from St. Francis Xavier Secondary in Mississauga, has been accepted for a prestigious summer research program at  Deep River Science Academy (DRSA) near Ottawa. RIC Centre, Mississauga put forward Ms Srivatson’s name as a candidate and Sheridan College has provided sponsorship.

This unique and innovative science research summer academy selects only 18 students across Canada.

The program provides a six week work experience in a leading research laboratory under the guidance of a professional scientist or engineer and a university science student hired full-time to supervise and guide their research.  The research projects range from chemistry, physics, biology and life sciences and incorporate aspects of engineering and technology.

DRSA is a private school and is authorized by the Ontario Ministry of Education to issue academic credits. Students must write a research paper and give an overview of their research to their peers and interested scientists before graduating with 2 credits.
