KITE Young Innovators Program

The KITE (formerly iDAPT)Young Innovators Program was launched in 2011 as an exciting way to motivate elementary and secondary school students (grades 1-12) to pursue careers in science and engineering fields. The Program reveals the positive, tangible impacts that they can have on society (while having a lot of fun along the way!).

This educational program is being developed in partnership with the Toronto District School Board and other community groups. Its purpose is to link Toronto Rehab's KITE research to the Ontario elementary and secondary school curricula. This goal is achieved through interactive tours, interactions with researchers and guided activities.

At Toronto Rehab's world-leading rehabilitation research centre we focus on cultivating innovative solutions to help future generations live more active, independant and healthier lives, while at the same time cultivating the growth of our future innovators.
