Earlier this month, 43 Computer Science and Business students from St. Paul High School were treated to a VIP tour of Shopify‘s Ottawa offices. They enjoyed their visit to the impressive facility, which included robotic go-karts, a slide, and many themed work spaces. Two St. Paul alumni who now work at Shopify prepared a motivational presentation for the visiting students. They also heard from Andrea Ross, who shared her extensive expertise regarding educational opportunities with our students.
One of the visiting students, Grade 12 Emma Orhun, was also awarded the prestigious Shopify Computer Science Internship. This paid internship is a partnership between Carleton University and Shopify, and will cover all of Emma’s tuition for her full undergraduate degree, among other advantages and opportunities. Congratulations, Emma.
