Putting the spotlight on applied learning at the Fleming College Innovation and Technology Showcase in partnership with Bell

 

Peterborough ON – (April 9, 2018) – Student innovation and hands-on learning will be on display at the Fleming College Innovation and Technology Showcase in partnership with Bell on Thursday, April 12. This year’s Showcase theme is ‘Ideas can change the world.’

“We’re excited to share with the community the skills and talent of our students as they truly are the technology and business leaders of the future,” said Maxine Mann, Dean of the School of Business and the School of Trades and Technology.

Hosted at the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre (KTTC) at Fleming’s Sutherland Campus, the event is a showcase of experiential learning in action. Throughout the winter, students from the School of Business and School of Trades and Technology have worked with sponsors from industry and non-profit sectors to find innovative solutions to a business- or technology-related problem. The students gain academic credit and on-the-job experience by undertaking these supervised applied projects. At the same time, the project results provide new information, answer questions, contribute to planning, and lay the groundwork for future innovations.

“Through these projects, the students make a valuable contribution to the local community and economy. At the same time, the applied projects engage the students’ entrepreneurial spirit, helping to prepare them to be high performers in their careers. Their participation in the Showcase further allows them to highlight their accomplishments, gain confidence and build their network,” said Dean Mann. “Thank you to Bell for supporting the Innovation and Technology Showcase.”

The 61 projects will be judged with prizes awarded at the conclusion of the Showcase. Members of the public are invited to attend the event and view the projects, which will be on display from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the KTTC.

Student projects will include:

  • A smart water sprinkler – the system measures soil moisture and air temperature to determine whether lawn watering is needed
  • Turning everyday objects such as posters or t-shirts into FM radio transmitters
  • The identification of international markets for sustainable materials used in the manufacture of surfboards (sponsored by Swell Composites)
  • Creating a plan to attract new business, relocate businesses, and repatriate locals in City of Kawartha Lakes
  • A smart doorbell, which can identify the visitor and notify the homeowner using a smartphone app

Keynote Speaker
In addition to the project displays, the Showcase will feature keynote speaker Bryan Bolan at 2 p.m. Bryan worked at Sportsnet for 12 years before starting his own video production company. He’s received industry awards, and praise from colleagues and clients for his creative and innovative work.

“And through it all, my depression continues to play its devilish role, hiding from time to time but never forever. Yet I’m still here. And I can’t wait to tell you why.” – Bryan Bolan

Bolan will reveal his journey as a video producer, creative innovator, entrepreneur, and sufferer of major depressive disorder. Through his presentation, he will share how he copes with the challenges and joys in his business and personal life.

Event agenda:

  • 11 a.m. – Showcase opens
  • 2 p.m. – Keynote speaker Bryan Bolan
  • 3 p.m. – Reception

Fleming College to receive provincial funding for green energy initiatives

 

Ontario Centres of Excellence also funding research projects through Fleming’s Centre for Sustainable Municipalities

Peterborough ON – (April 4, 2018) – Fleming College will install a new geothermal heating and cooling system at Sutherland Campus to help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions thanks to funding from the provincial government.

Jeff Leal, MPP for Peterborough, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and Minister Responsible for Small Business, announced close to $13 million in infrastructure and research funding during a visit to Fleming College today.

“Our partnership with Fleming College ensures more opportunities for local students and businesses,” said Jeff Leal, MPP for Peterborough. “I am pleased to see the positive impact of key industry research and development collaborations across our community.”

Fleming will receive a total of $12,147,000 from the Greenhouse Gas Campus Retrofits Program (GGCRP), which includes:

  • $6.209 million from the Innovation Grant Fund to fund the Fleming College Emissions Reduction Initiative
  • $1.538 million from the Retrofits Grant Fund for Cap and Trade Non-Participants
  • $4.4 million repayable loan from the Interest-Free Loan Fund

The $6.209 million will go toward installing a closed loop vertical borehole geothermal system and upgrades to the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre that will include rooftop solar and wind energy as well as the implementation of new technologies such as an Internet of Things lab. The remaining funding will be used for additional GHG reducing initiatives as well as the creation of a low carbon demonstration site that will support the skills development of students. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2019.

“Fleming College prides itself on being a leader in sustainability within the communities we serve and among other post-secondary institutions. Developing these renewable energy systems will be a leap forward for us to further reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and replace aging, outdated heating and cooling systems. It will further provide valuable learning opportunities for our students,” said Fleming College President Tony Tilly.

MPP Leal also announced the province has awarded Fleming’s Centre for Sustainable Municipalities (CSM) a $500,000 research grant for a portfolio of projects designed to accelerate the development of advanced asset management technologies.

“Municipalities own almost 60% of Canada’s core public infrastructure. New state-of-the-art technologies provide opportunities for municipalities to optimize the management and operation of these assets. There is a real potential to get municipalities plugged in to transformative technologies,” said Grant Murphy, Manager of the Centre for Sustainable Municipalities.

The funding is part of the Government of Ontario’s Colleges Applied Research and Development Fund (CARDF), administered by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) in the Stream 1 College Strategic Sector/Cluster/Technology Platform Program (CSSCTP). The program is supported by the Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science; in partnership with Colleges Ontario. The award will be combined with $500,000 in partner cash and in-kind funding.

“The CSM is unique in its creation of a cluster, bringing together municipalities, the private sector, and Fleming College. This funding will provide further opportunities for collaboration between all parties. The companies involved will see direct benefits, as will the advanced infrastructure and asset management sector, and the municipalities they serve,” said Dr. Tilly.

About the Centre for Sustainable Municipalities
Launched in 2017, The Centre for Sustainable Municipalities (CSM) at Fleming College builds on Fleming’s international reputation for excellence in environmental research, education, training, and commitment to sustainability. The CSM connects the expertise of Fleming’s experienced and highly skilled faculty researchers in areas relevant to sustainability, innovative approaches to asset management, and municipal infrastructure services.

Fleming Fish & Wildlife students in the field.

Trent University, Fleming College renew degree pathways in environmental and natural resource studies

 

City of Kawartha Lakes ON – (March 29, 2018) – Trent University and Fleming College have renewed an agreement that allows students in three Fleming programs the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Science.

Eligible graduates of the Environmental Technology, Ecosystem Management Technology, and Fish and Wildlife Technology advanced diploma programs will continue to have the opportunity to be granted 10 credits toward Trent’s Environmental and Resource Science B.Sc. degree, allowing them to enter directly into the third year of the program.

“This agreement provides our students with the opportunity to combine the applied, hands-on learning available in our programs with theoretical learning available at Trent, in a shortened time-frame, which is attractive to students. Having both skillsets better prepares our students for jobs in the environmental sector,” said Brett Goodwin, Dean/Principal, School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, Frost Campus.

The three programs are part of the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences (SENRS), located at Fleming’s Frost Campus in Lindsay, Ont. Students in most SENRS diploma programs share a common first semester, which creates a solid academic foundation and allows students to acquire fundamental, transferable skills. These programs also provide students with extensive experiential learning through applied outdoor learning opportunities, field camps, and co-operative education.

The renewal further builds on Fleming’s longstanding partnership with Trent University and the memorandum of understanding signed between the two institutions in April 2016. The MOU created a formal commitment between Trent and Fleming to collaborate in both academic programming and research partnerships in areas related to environmental and natural resource studies.

The two institutions share a comprehensive offering of pathways in other areas of study, ranging from business to education to computers to law and justice.
