Mary Hurley is a resource teacher with the Peel Board of Education in Mississauga, Ontario. She developed a program for female, Aboriginal, visible minority and physically challenged students that matched them with mentors from science and applied science faculties in universities. The students took part in six- to eight-week programs that allowed them to gain experience in practical research techniques and, more importantly, allowed them to prove to themselves that they had what it takes to pursue higher education in sciences.
