Regional Recipient

Peter Vogel

Peter Vogel set up a Grade 12 physics course and created a computer science program from scratch at Notre Dame Regional Secondary School in Vancouver. Along the way, he introduced students to new challenges such as a bridge-building contest, which has proven extremely popular and successful at the school. As a result of his enthusiasm, more than half of Mr. Vogel's Grade 12 physics students go on to careers in engineering or a related field.
