2018/19 Superior Science Staff
Hey there!! My name is Michael and I am in my 3rd year of Kinesiology at Lakehead University! I am VERY excited to be working at Superior Science as a Director! Since I was a child, I have always had a vast passion for science. I have always found it interesting learning how things work and applying those concepts to everyday life. This will be my third year working at Superior Science, but my position this year will be a tad different compared to past years. In my first summer working at Superior Science, I was a Junior Instructor and learned a lot of different things from the children that have really stuck with me through my life. In my second year working at Superior Science, I was a University Instructor and really enjoyed teaching students on different things about science! This past summer, I had the opportunity to be a CanCode Instructor, which allowed me to teach new coding activities to campers. Lastly, I have always had a strong passion of inspiring and teaching other people how the world around us works, which is why I especially love working here!
Hi there! My name is Ashley and I am in my fourth year of chemical engineering 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 program! 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 for another summer as a 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! I am super excited for what I know will be another great year and I look forward to meeting everyone!
NICK (CODE CLUB COORDINATOR)
My name is Nick and I just graduated from Applied Bio-Molecular Science at Lakehead University and am now working on a Masters at NOSM! I am super excited to be working at Superior Science again throughout the school year as a Code Club Coordinator. 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 year with our new activities, while learning that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is fun and there is an area of science for everyone!
Nick (Cancode Instructor)
Hi! I’m the other Nick at Superior Science this year, and I'll be developing a brand new curriculum relating to coding! This is my second year with Superior Science and I'm excited to be back and able to improve the programming we offer in the computer and technology areas of our camp! I am in my fourth year of Applied Bio-Molecular Science here at Lakehead University, and I’m excited to share my love of all fields of science with campers. I can't wait to expand both my knowledge of coding as well as the knowledge of all campers this year. 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 year ahead of us!
