Where to Watch the SprottTalks Sessions You Missed
Over the course of three weeks, our students and instructors received the opportunity to interactively connect with their Sprott Shaw community online through SprottTalks.
SprottTalks is a place where students can learn new tips and tricks, discover fun activities, and connect with their peers online in the comfort of their own homes. All sessions were curated to encompass topics relevant for students both during this current trying time and for every other occasion they may come across with as a student. Fortunately, some of these sessions were recorded and uploaded on YouTube for our students to watch and learn something from. Find out what you missed from our SprottTalks below!
