Junior Instructor Program


Junior Instructors are high school and university student volunteers who support our summer camps, clubs (weekly), and single-day event programs for kids. They will work closely with our instructor team to deliver and share STEM to youth in a hands-on and dynamic learning environment. Junior Instructors are students going into grade 10 and above in September 2020, or are currently pursuing post-secondary education.

We are currently recruiting students to assist with one-week-long clubs that will run from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM every day for one week. We encourage students who will be entering Grade 10 or above in the fall of 2020 or students currently studying their undergraduate degree to apply.
