The 15th Annual Toronto Brain Bee competition took place at the Medical Sciences Building, on April 5, 2013. 56 students from 26 high schools in the Toronto area participated in the competition.
Firefly is honored to be the cause that Trinity College has chosen to support in 2012.
The University of Trinity College, commonly known as Trinity College and informally Trin, is a college of the University of Toronto, founded in 1851 by Bishop John Strachan, and continues to this day to embrace a rich history of tradition. This includes two formal dances each year, the first of which is the Saint's Ball.
In 2011 we created a series of mini-documentaries called the Bright Lights Video Project, following the top three Brain Bee competitors in the areas of neuroscience they were given the opportunity to study. We wanted to know more about what fascinates these students about the brain, to gain insights on how to inspire all students to understand and take care of their brains.
Firefly was honored to be the charity selected by the Students at the Toronto French School this year to benefit from the amazing Dance Show that took place on January 13th and 14th. There were three performances in all — two shows in the evening and one on Friday afternoon for the Students of the Junior School.
On January 16th, during Alzheimer Awareness month, bright young brains from the Toronto French School chose Firefly as their charity of choice for their annual Dance Show fundraising event. The student-led event sold out with over 200 families and student in attendance and raised $6000 dollars in the process.
