Hello all STEM families. We hope you will be excited about our Superhero Contest! March 8th is a very important date for two reasons. It’s International Women’s Day but it is also the release of the movie Captain Marvel in Canada. We think it is fitting that Captain Marvel is being released on the same day as International Women’s Day due to the fact that the lead character is a women. To celebrate this special day we have decided to run a Superhero Contest!
This is how the contest will work: the first step is to like, tag 3 friends you think would enjoy STEM Camp this summer and share our Facebook post to be eligible to win a free week of camp!:)
The second step is the fun part! Captain Marvel has a wide range of superpowers but… what if YOU were a super hero? What would be YOUR super power? Record a video and tell us what your incredible super power is that will save the world! Be creative!!!
Post you video with the hashtag #SuperheroContest #Mysuperpower #STEMCAMP #CuriosityisPOWER and tag STEM Camp. Don’t forget to make your post public so we can see it. If you don’t want to, post it on your timelime and also on the Facebook’s comments. You have until March 10th to post it.
The most incredible superpower will win a FREE WEEK at STEM Camp!!! 🥳🤩🤪😁 The winner will be announced on March 8th. Stay tuned!
Good luck to all! We are looking forward to seeing all the superheros out there in our contest !
Captain Marvel, also known as Carol Danvers was the head of NASA security when she was exposed to a powerful alien device. She was transformed into a mighty cosmic powered hero. She is then caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
She is really powerful and we are looking forward to see a super heroine as a star in a movie inspiring girls!
Girls in STEM
STEM Camp is committed to promoting girls participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields. We believe that both, boys and girls can contribute enormously to our future, and there is nothing a girl can’t do. It is well known that there is a big gender gap in these fields, with STEM careers being predominantly filled with men. We want to change that imbalance. This can start with an enjoyable summer camp experience, which can open doors to amazement, discoveries and exploration in STEM.
When we started in 2013, for every girl we had 4 boys registered at STEM Camp. Last year we were able to reduce this gap to 2:1. We would love to see our camps filled with boys and girls, equally represented!

Never forget – curiosity is your main super power! Join STEM Camp this summer and let’s explore the amazing world of STEM together!
Best of luck to all participants in our Superhero Contest!
