Allan Burston

Allan Burston's mentorship program at Downsview Secondary School in North York, Ontario, has sparked enthusiasm for science among both secondary and elementary school students. Grade 12 and OAC students prepare labs for Grade 4 and 5 students. The younger students get excited about science by watching metals react violently with water and by learning to use microscopes. High school students increase their understanding of scientific concepts by researching and explaining them.
