In this era of fast and profound change, a bold and innovative student opportunity is taking shape! The John Abbott Sandbox is an innovation and social entrepreneurship centre located in a room designed to create the most flexible, fun, innovative and collaborative environment possible. Its mission: to engage students in a problem-solving process for real-world problems while participating in a non-credit activity to acquire innovation and entrepreneurial skills through the development of their own project ideas. Multi-disciplinary teams are guided with four Skill Builders and at the end of the semester, have the opportunity to showcase their project at a Pitch event for potential funding.
