Director's Message

director

Kevin Cougler, CEO and Founder

STEM education is important. It is estimated that 90% of Canada's future will require STEM education but there's a problem. We just don't graduate enough kids to actually fill these jobs now or in the future. I started STEM Camp in 2013 to address this problem by creating a fun learning environment for kids to learn STEM. It is my hope they will be amazed, be curious, be confident and mostly have fun with the STEM activities we create.

Lastly, an appeal to parents if I may. PLEASE enroll your girls. Canada desperately needs more girls interested in STEM.

Thanks for thinking about STEM Camp - have a great summer!

Women in STEM: Biologist Samantha Yammineexpand

Our featured Woman in STEM is Samantha Yammine, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto. A lot of people use social media to talk about their passions; well, so does Yammine, who loves to share her discoveries on her Instagram page.

Her academic research is focused on studying the brain cells. In her words, “I study brain development and stem cell biology; in particular, the lineage relationships of the earliest cells of the brain during development, and how stem cells maintain the adult brain and can be activated for repair.” Samantha is developing her research under the supervision of renown scientist Dr. Derek van der Kooy.

Like many scientists, she started her interest in science when she was a kid. At first, she thought she would be a chemist since she always loved chemical reactions. But later on, she was fascinated with the human brain, and when she was 14 years old, she already knew she wanted to pursue neuroscience studies. 

Her research, her speech abilities and most of all her passion about STEM, has opened a lot of incredible doors for her. She has teaching experience from high school to University, she is a very requested speaker and appeared on TV as a guest science expert in various programs. 

Yammine has a piece of advice for girls interested in STEM: “don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something if that’s what you want. Sometimes the number one thing that holds us back is ourselves, so beware of any depreciation or ego that might be weighing you down internally. If people try to drag you down, replace them with others who are wise enough to be champions for you because you deserve more champions and less haters”. Well said Samantha Yammine, STEM Camp agrees completely!

Don’t miss the opportunity to nurture your curiosity and passion about STEM. Learn more HERE.

Next week: Have you ever heard of Jenise Lee? Don’t miss next week “Women in STEM”!

STEM Camp’s new segment “Women in STEM” features prominent female Canadian STEM Champions. It is part of STEM Camp’s ongoing passion for, and commitment to, helping parents entice young girls to pursue their dreams in STEM-related fields. It is our hope that parents will read this feature with their girls each Monday from December 11, 2017 until June 25th. Go STEM girls!

Women in STEM: Simone Charronexpand

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) have a massive impact on society’s welfare and development. Simone Charron found her chance to make a positive impact on the world through her career as an engineer.

As a student at Carleton University, she participated in impactful programs like Engineers Without Borders Canada. “I liked the idea that a background in engineering could bring value to projects that are outside the traditional engineering box”, said Charron.

As a Project Officer working at Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Charron has had many challenges during her career. She worked on the sustainability portfolio of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) project in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Established

 

in 2007, CHARS is a world-class hub for science and technology research in the Arctic, which brings an enhanced level of research and analysis to Canada’s North.

When Charron started this project, she was completing her last co-op placement as a student. She credits this project for keeping her interested and challenged by engineering when she faced doubts about her career. Moreover, she had opportunities to impact other students by mentoring them through their co-op experiences.

Simone is an inspiration for those who want to leave a legacy and use STEM as a tool to do so. There are so many opportunities to be discovered and so many inspirational moments to be discovered. The world needs people like Simone Charron!

Don’t miss the opportunity to expose your children to STEM by providing them with a fun and unique summer camp experience at STEM Camp. Learn More.

Women in STEM: Melisa Gumusexpand

Science, technology, engineering and math are such important fields, which lead to meaningful innovations and development. Imagine all the discoveries that come to life when we combine these fields. Melisa Gumus does and this is why her work is so interesting.

How do oysters eat? Why do dogs blink but cats do not? Curiosity was the source of my questions when I was a kid although I did not know that a career in science was an option”, said Gumus.

Melissa is doing a double major in Neuroscience and Mathematics with a minor in Physiology at the University of Toronto. She has already made relevant discoveries on the human brain and is combining both areas of math and science, to keep developing her research in computational neuroscience. She affirms that her curiosity about human brain determined her path in life.

Pay attention to her advice for you, curious girl: “Please, always remember that there is nothing that can stop you from going after your curiosity and passion!”.

At STEM Camp, children are introduced to hands-on, engaging STEM activities that promote discovery, reward curiosity and leave children amazed at what they can do. Don’t miss out! Click here and enrol now!

Fact or Fiction Weekexpand

Each year, STEM Camp offers 4 different themes that will guide children’s imagination, curiosity and sense of wonder through the summer. One of the 2018 themes is Fact or Fiction and we are super excited about what we will learn together during this week.

The Fact or Fiction Week will be full of wild and crazy (but really cool) stuff in the world of STEM that may be fact or may be fiction such as beavers being relocated by parachutes or the existence of quicksand. Campers will be challenged to build or re-create the parachutes and the quicksand and through these challenges, determine for themselves what is fact and what is fiction!

We see so many intriguing things on movies, cartoons and the internet. Are they real? Are they possible? Are they a fact or a fiction? There is no better way to know than to test it! 

Here is a challenge to get you warm while you wait for Fact or Fiction week at STEM Camp:

 ➡️➡️ Have you ever heard that cows' gas (that's right...gas) are largely responsible for global warming? You tell us. Is that fact or fiction? Go to our Facebook page and share what you discovered with us, we are curious!!! ⬅️⬅️

 

We still have a spot for you, hurry and enrol today at stemcamp.ca

Ask An Astronaut!expand

February 16, 2018 (Embro, ON) — Have you ever dreamed of being able to ask questions of astronauts when you were growing up? We know we did. And guess what? STEM Camp is super excited to provide an opportunity for your child to do just that. Ask an astronaut…a question! This pre-camp activity is part of Space Week this coming summer and part of our partnership with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).  STEM Camp and the CSA have developed a mechanism for these questions to be asked and answered by one of Canada’s astronaut’s! But you need to move quickly. Questions need to be posted now in order for them to be received and answered in time for summer camp. Our astronauts are really busy training for exciting missions in space including this November with astronaut, David Saint-Jacques!

Here’s what to do:

Go to the brand new Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/STEMCampCSA2018/) that we have created just for Space Week. Read the information we have posted for you and your children and ASK YOUR QUESTION!

During Space Week at STEM Camp your child will get the answer.

Have fun!

STEM Camp looking for girls to help with Dragons’ Den pitchexpand

February 16, 2018 (Embro, ON) — Canada’s largest educational summer camp is looking for exceptional girls between the ages of 5 and 13 to help in an audition for CBC’s the Dragons’ Den.

On March 7, 2018, STEM Camp will be auditioning for CBC’s Dragons’ Den in Waterloo, Ontario. As part of their pitch, STEM Camp is providing an opportunity for a girl between the ages of 5 and 13 to assist with their audition.  The lucky winner (plus a parent or legal guardian) will have the opportunity to participate in the “pitch’” and ultimately a chance to appear on the Dragons’ Den (if selected by CBC).

STEM Camp is a not for profit with a mission to inspire youth in the science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM) fields of study by providing fun activities in these subject areas at their summer camp (located at 77 locations across Ontario and Quebec).

If selected by CBC to appear on the Dragons’ Den, the lucky winner has an opportunity to be viewed by millions of viewers across Canada as a “girl in STEM”; thereby encouraging other girls to participate in STEM Camps in their area, or in STEM-related activities themselves. This is part of STEM Camp’s commitment to finding ways to increase the number of girls who are inspired to enter into STEM education, and ultimately STEM-based careers.

STEM Camp CEO and Founder, Kevin Cougler, says that the statistics regarding women in STEM education are alarming.  He notes that a 2013 study published by Statistics Canada revealed that most university STEM graduates are men. “STEM Camp is constantly looking for ways to change that trend, and was formed as a not- for- profit that same year to address the issue,” he says. Through initiatives such as this, STEM Camp’s ratio of boys to girls attending summer camp continues to make gains toward gender parity which continues to make gains each year.

To enter the contest, families are asked to visit STEM Camp’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SummerSTEMCamp for details.

STEM Camp and Canadian Space Agency Team Upexpand

January 5, 2018 (Embro, ON) — Canadian not for profit summer camp provider, STEM CampTM, is teaming up with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to bring exciting space activities to STEM CampTM during the summer of 2018.

Here’s a sneak preview of what we are developing thus far as well as some super resources that parents have access to online.

Ask an Astronaut! – Throughout the spring of 2018 we will be asking STEM Camp parents, via social media channels, to submit questions from their children attending STEM Camp this summer for a Canadian astronaut to answer. STEM Camp will share his or her responses this summer across all 77 locations via video. For more information on Canada’s active astronauts you can learn more here.

Canadian Space Inventions – Did you know there have been several Canadian inventions for space, not just the Canadarm and the Canadarm2?  One of them is the new AstroSkin, which is a smart shirt for space that is headed for the International Space Station in 2018.  Learn more about AstroSkin here. And learn about other Canadian space inventions here.

At-Home Activities – The Canadian Space Agency has a wonderful list of at-home activities for parents and children to do together.

Space Weather – We hear about the weather in our local towns and we hear about events that affect different regions of planet Earth. But we don’t spend a lot of time looking at how space weather affects our own weather. Did you know you can access the Canadian Space Agency’s AuroraMAX site which broadcasts the aurora borealis live from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, during the aurora season?

Predictions are made using the following websites:

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/

http://www.spaceweather.gc.ca/index-en.php

http://www.spaceweather.gc.ca/index-fr.php

http://www.solarham.net/

And check out the CSA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for alerts when the aurora are visible.

Canadian Space Agency activities will take place during the Space Week.

See the impact STEM Camp can have on your child and Register today!
