Student Resources Team

  • The team consults students in the STEM community to ensure that resources being created meet their needs.
  • The resources that are created aim to broaden the perspectives of young scientists by making them more aware of the career demands

Insights and News Team

  • The Insights and News Section Project Team oversees and coordinates the development of articles for publication in the journal and on FSST's science.gc.ca blog.

Arts and Science Team

  • This team values experience in any artistic field (music, design, drawing, etc.) and applicants interested in scientific exploration that requires a willingness to think outside of the box are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • Translations Team
  • This program allows access to FSST’s science initiatives in both languages, allowing equal access to research and scientific opportunities.
  • The translators on the team are responsible for translating any of the webpages of the official website, as well as any forms and official paperwork.
  • The team members are highly bilingual and all have a completion of a secondary and/or post-secondary education with either a French immersion program or a French language degree of education.

Interactive Campaign Team

  • An example of a possible initiative could include an online STEM education video contest.
  • The team is new this year and ambassadors will play a key role in the development of its direction

Research Co-op Team

  • Team in the Ambassador Program that liaises with and creates resources for the FSST’s Online Research Co-op Program.
