A for­mer NASA as­tro­naut, the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and the Cana­di­an High Com­mis­sion­er were among sev­er­al high-pro­file voic­es to praise North­gate Col­lege at an award cer­e­mo­ny for the glob­al Cubes in Space pro­gramme. Cubes in Space is an in­ter­na­tion­al con­test in which teams of sec­ondary school stu­dents com­pete by de­vel­op­ing sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, en­gi­neer­ing or math­e­mat­ics-based (STEM) ex­per­i­ments for launch in­to space. North­Gate Col­lege’s T&T-based cam­pus won the top prize for its ex­per­i­ment de­sign.
