Who We Are

Science Expo Youth Empowerment Group is the largest student-run non-profit organization that connects youth to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) community in Canada. Operating in the provinces of Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, Science Expo has established a diverse network of motivated students, professionals, and industry leaders.

Our mission is to enrich students' experiences beyond the classroom; empower youth with opportunities, tools, and connections; and encourage youth to explore the possibilities in STEM through hands-on learning.

Ontario Science Expo

Ontario is where Science Expo all began in 2010. Our first symposium was hosted in a local high school auditorium, but since then our programs have grown to encompass a full day conference, an extensive ambassador program, and a new "Sparks Sessions" mentorship program. Sparks Sessions provide high school students with the opportunity to chat with young professionals and leaders in STEM over a cup of coffee, allowing for ideas to be shared and opportunities to be unlocked. Currently, Ontario boasts a network of 85 ambassadors from Ottawa to London, and will be hosting its 6th annual conference, "Coalesce", in November 2015 at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.

Alberta Science Expo

Alberta is the newest province that Science Expo has reached during its national expansion. Having been inaugurated since only September 2014, Science Expo Alberta has taken every opportunity to expand the organization's vision not only to a new geographical region, but also to a new level of excellence. Apart from launching an Ambassadors Program that reached over 30 schools from all over the province, the Alberta chapter also launched Science Expo's Online Speaker Series, a medium through which they aim to democratize the conference enrichment process through interview-style YouTube videos featuring STEM role models. Recently, Alberta also launched a mentorship program with over 30 mentors and mentees throughout Edmonton and Calgary. On October 10, Science Expo Alberta will be hosting its inaugural conference, "Fusion: Uniting Potential", at the TELUS World of Science Edmonton.

British Columbia Science Expo

Science Expo BC is a fairly new chapter, started two years ago with a single Fall Info Night. In the two years since, the BC Chapter has grown to have a presence in over 50 high schools across the Greater Vancouver Area with its extensive Ambassador and Internship programs. It has continued to build its network throughout BC, recently partnering with SAP to host an "Intro to Web Apps" workshop at the SAP Vancouver Office. Last year, the chapter hosted its first BC conference at the Coast Plaza Hotel with 4 keynote speakers, 5 engaging workshops, 20 exhibitors and almost 200 in attendance! The BC team plans to continue their growth and deliver engaging development programs throughout the next year!
