Every teen deserves access to STEM opportunities.
Our mission at Teen Nerd Nite (TNN) is to provide exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) opportunities, resources, and programs for high-school teens outside their standard education. TNN is based in North Vancouver, but all 2020/2021 virtual initiatives are available to students across BC.
The TNN 2020/2021 cycle will offer the following free STEM opportunities to students in grades 8-12:
Mentoring 101: A 4-week program connecting students across BC with a STEM mentor via an email conversation with weekly prompts. Applications are required. All applicants will be entered into a draw for the chance to win cool prizes, including UBC bookstore gift cards, Grammarly subscriptions, recreation centre memberships, MasterCard gift cards, Amazon gift cards, and much more (this specific program is available to students in Grades 11 or 12).
