Empowering youth through educational experiences in STEM that cultivate curiosity and an attitude for lifelong learning.

All SuperNOVA programs are designed to complement provincial learning outcomes and incorporate practices and policies recommended by provincial and national organizations with expertise in STEM outreach, youth development, and day camp management. With the support and guidance of Dalhousie University, Actua, and our supporters representing the private and public sectors, we are able to enhance our core programs with specialized outreach initiatives and services that ensure that youth, regardless of their geographic location, socio-economic situation, ability or gender, can be inspired and empowered through STEM.

SuperNOVA is a not-for-profit initiative of Dalhousie University that promotes science, engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM) to youth in Atlantic Canada.

Based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, SuperNOVA offers engaging and innovative workshops, summer camps, clubs, and community events throughout Atlantic Canada that provide youth with rewarding experiences in STEM and nurture a life-long love of exploration, creativity, and academic achievement. As well as providing our youth engagement programs, SuperNOVA provides a wide variety of training to teachers and educators to support STEM education across a variety of sectors.
