Did you know that this year is the 10th anniversary of the SickKids Learning Institute? To celebrate, join the Learning Institute at our fourth annual Celebrating Education showcase! 

This hands-on learning event is a unique opportunity to discover the latest ideas and experiences in education at SickKids.

Groups from across SickKids will host interactive stations about the innovative work and education projects that make SickKids a world-class leader in paediatric medicine.

Here’s a sneak peek of the interactive booths you'll discover:

  • Get hands-on experience taking care of a child requiring BiPAP, Cough Assist and invasive mechanical ventilation via a tracheostomy
  • Find out the risks of antibiotic resistance and how to prevent it with an interactive teaching tool
  • Go on a unique "gallery walk" to find out better ways to communicate with young children
  • Spin the prize wheel to learn more about the new SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health
  • And much more!
