Nick (Director):
My name is Nick and I am in my fourth year in Applied Bio-Molecular Science at Lakehead University! I am super excited to be working at Superior Science again this summer as a director. I began my Superior Science journey in 2002 when I was a camper. I loved getting to learn new things at camp and understanding how things we use everyday work. After being a camper for a number of years, I was a volunteer, and for three summers, I was a Junior Instructor helping in the camp rooms, and also an instructor teaching and running the classroom. Superior Science sparked my interest in science when I was a camper and led me to studying here at Lakehead University. I hope that the campers will have a lot of fun this summer with our new activities, while learning that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is fun and that there is an area of science for everyone!

Ashley (Director):

Hi there! My name is Ashley and I will be entering my third year of chemical engineering this fall at Lakehead University. My interest in science began when I was a camper myself at Superior Science and has only grown throughout the years that I’ve been involved with the camp! I have had the privilege to work with Superior Science as a volunteer, Junior Instructor, Instructor and now I am very excited to be back as a Junior Director. It has been highly rewarding to enable campers to immerse themselves in all the different areas of STEM in a fun and stimulating environment. I hope to be a positive role model and continue to spark an interest in science for the campers just as others have done for me! 

 

Stacy (Instructor):

Hey there! My name is Stacy and I’ve just completed my first year in the Bachelor of Medical Sciences program at Western University. I’m super excited to be a part of Superior Science this summer as an instructor. Science has always been a big part of my life and I’ve always loved getting to learn and explore new ideas. Perhaps this is what drew me into Superior Science many years ago as a camper. After being a camper for several summers, I was a volunteer and then Junior Instructor here. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to introduce kids to the broad fields of science and to show them how fun and applicable science can be. I know this is going to be a fantastic summer and I can’t wait!

 

Michael (Instructor):

My name is Michael but lots of people just call me Mike! I am currently studying Kinesiology at Lakehead University and just finished my first year here. Last year, I had the privilege to work at Superior Science as a Junior Instructor for the summer. I loved every minute of it and decided to come back this year, but as a University Instructor. Ever since I was in elementary school, I have always had a passion for different types of science. In high school, I broadened my science education by taking different courses such as Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Kinesiology. My favourite part about science is when it applies to real-life experiences. I find it fascinating to know how and why things work the way they do. Within Superior Science, I have had many different opportunities to help our campers relate science to different life occurrences. This means a lot to me as it is important to stimulate peoples’ imagination and creativity through science. To conclude, I hope that every camper that attends Superior Science this summer will have a fun-filled time while learning about STEM and how it relates to real-life scenarios.

 

Nick (Instructor):

I’m the other Nick at Superior Science this summer, happy to be helping organize and run our awesome camps this summer. This is my first summer with Superior Science and I can’t wait to have a blast learning and playing with science during the summer with all our campers! I’ve just completed my second year of Applied Bio-Molecular Science here at Lakehead University, and I’m excited to share my love of science with campers, an opportunity that I feel is best available through Superior Science summer camps. I always seek positions that allow me to teach others, helping to expand both their knowledge and mine. Superior Science allows me to combine my love of teaching and science, and I’m honoured to be a part of it. A lot of fun and innovative activities are being planned, so I can’t wait for the awesome summer ahead of us!
