Danforth held an amazing fund raising event to raise money for cancer research called Cuts for Cancer yesterday.  Several staff and students donated their hair to help make wigs for those undergoing cancer treatments.  A full media frenzy showed up to cover the event, and it was seen on the CBC evening news.  For those that missed it click on the link on the bottom to see MaST student Danielle getting interviewed!

Congrats to Ms Chan and Ms Romani, and all the staff and students who made this an amazingly successful event!

Danforth had its first Math Fair aka Pi Day celebration in the Cafeteria today.  The equivalent of a math-related Science Fair, Pi Day was supposed to be on March 14th, but due to March break, it was moved to this later date.  The Grade 9 and 10 MaST classes all made booths to show how math can be fun!

Parents, staff and students were treated to a multitude of displays and presentations ranging from high tech inventions to lessons on card counting and problem solving games with prizes.  Congrats to Ms Cheung and Mr Jackson for making this a fun and unique event that showcased how math is more than just numbers!

Congrats to all the winners of Danforth's Science Fair last night!

Ms Tevlin put together another amazing Science Fair which decided the school's entries into the City Science on March 31st.  Every year, MaST students are required to make a science fair project and we saw many great displays showing everything from Liquid Sunshine to How Fast Can A Gauss Rifle Fire.  Upper year MaST students in Engineering raced their hand built rubber-band powered cars, while students from the Hospitality department cooked up great snacks for everyone.  A good crowd of family, friends and alumni came out to enjoy the evening and it was a success thanks to many teachers from the Science and Technology departments.
