Who Are We?
STEM Fellowship is a Canadian registered charity that uses mentorship and experiential learning to equip the next generation of change-makers with indispensable skills in data science and scholarly writing. We began our activity in February 2015 and soon expanded to high schools and universities across Canada. Currently, we have 20 university branches in over 8 provinces and we’re still growing!
We present a new philosophy for student-driven experiential learning in STEM and provide our fellows with tools that will help them in the current STEM research and education ecosystem. We are a virtual meeting place for advanced STEM learning. A place where students can collaborate to develop their ideas, and discuss them with world-class experts. An opportunity for peer-review and scholarly publications of high school and university research.
