Our world is changing fast. We don’t know what the jobs of the future will be, but what we do know is that foundational skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) will help prepare youth for any career path they choose to pursue.
The main goal of Youth Science Network is to develop a partnership with Colleges and Universities throughout Canada to offer assistance to students who wish to undertake STEM-based lab work and receive mentorship for their projects.
Creating Actionable Change
Founded in 2017, YSN recognizes the tremendous need for high school students to partner with professors at post-secondary institutions in developing their science and engineering projects to ensure that they are of a caliber that will allow them to compete effectively on the world stage. Such assistance has the added advantage of allowing students to prepare for their post-secondary education and to expose them to what their local University or College has to offer.
A National Voice For STEM Advocacy
To date, Youth Science Network has developed opportunities for high school students in to work at 10 universities across Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Quebec to work with professors to conduct their own experiments. YSN is aimed at encouraging some of the top young minds in our country to better compete with other nations and stimulate the growth of the Canadian scientific community in the years to come.
