About this camp


90% of jobs in the future will require STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education. As parents, we must find ways to make learning fun and exciting for our children to help ensure their futures. Campers participate in STEM activities that are fun and engaging while they learn!

Director's Message


Kevin Cougler, CEO and Founder

Hi. Thanks for checking out STEM Camp and my message page. I think the most important reason I founded STEM Camp was to try and find a way to get kids excited about the STEM subjects because I never really was when I went to school and I know how important this education is for our kids. We will soon live in a world where an estimated 90-95% of Canadian jobs will require excellent STEM-based education. If our children are not excited by STEM subjects when they are in school, the end result will be devastating for them trying to find a job as well as for the future of Canada attempting to compete in a global STEM marketplace. Innovation is key to a healthy economy. If Canadians are not trained in ways to innovate in the STEM fields we will find ourselves falling behind. STEM Camp employs creative and innovative educational professionals who create activities for STEM Campers to participate in that fire their imaginations, create passion for STEM and let them have a great time while learning. Who doesn't love robotics? or pens that print in the air? or whatever the next best scientific discovery is? This is why I love STEM Camp. I hope your son or daughter does too!

Stories & Testimonials


STEM Camp at Western University

Summer STEM Camp at Western University is an opportunity for campers to have fun and learn through daily experiments and interaction with Canadian STEM experts. STEM Camp is an extension of the Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC) program that connects students with Canadian STEM experts via video conference for real-time learning opportunities. Campers at STEM Camp, London were interviewed yesterday by CTV London. They see STEM Camp as a fun way to spend the summer but also as a way to prepare for their futures. Here is what they said… 

“If you have to do a project or anything you’ll actually know how to do it!”

“We can get better at science”

“So when you get older you can have better jobs”

Camp Open House in Ingersoll

INGERSOLL - Extracting DNA from a banana sounds like something one might do in a scientific laboratory, but with a few simple household ingredients, about a dozen students got to do their own hands-on genetic experiment at Fusion Youth Centre last week. The experiment was part of a sneak preview of what's on the agenda for a special March Break STEM camp being held at the centre by Partners In Research (PIR). PIR STEM camps use multimedia connections to introduce youth to researchers across Canada in the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The Wednesday, Feb. 12 event had Dr. Thomas Merritt, a geneticist from Laurentian University, participating via an ipad. He explained genes and DNA in terms the youth, aged around 13, could understand during the roughly half-hour video call. In the Fusion room, Drew Fallowfield, STEM camp leader, lead the students through the steps of extracting the banana DNA. It was as simple as mashing the banana, adding some salt and water, filtering the mixture and adding some rubbing alcohol to the liquid that remained. The DNA strands appeared as white specks and could be picked up with a toothpick. STEM camps are designed to get youth interested in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math and address concerns that students aren't pursuing these paths in their senior high school years, which could leave a gap in these career areas. PIR is hosting the March Break camp at Fusion as a way to “ignite an interest in youth for science, technology, engineering and math by presenting STEM activities and experiments, and games that are both educational and fun,” said Fallowfield in a press release. Camps are also in the works for the summer. PIR executive director Kevin Cougler was instrumental in developing the multimedia connection to learning. In 2005 he was approached by Canadian philanthropist Ron Calhoun with an idea to somehow use his charity, Partners in Research, to bring researchers into the classroom to inspire students. One year later, Virtual Researchers On Call (VROC) was born. Since it's launch, the program has experienced explosive growth, now partnering Grade 5 to 12 students from over 60 of Ontario's school boards with researchers from all but three of the province's universities and continues to experience rapid growth and has expanded into Alberta, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, with plans to launch in British Columbia and Quebec in the near future. For information about registering for the STEM camps at Fusion, see the educational programs link at www.pirweb.org or call Fusion program coordinator Craig Boddy at 519-485-4386 ext. 43.

Fusion hosts STEM camp March Break pilot

Partners in Research (PIR) - a registered charity based in London - brought its Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) camp to Ingersoll's Fusion Youth Activity and Technology Centre for a pilot March Break program. Up to 14 children between the ages five and 13 attended the daily sessions, which ran Monday through Friday, exploring a variety of subjects from comets and electronics to alternative energy vehicles and exotic animals. PIR ran two STEM camps last summer with 20 children attending each two week session. This year, the organization plans to run 10 camps around southwestern Ontario and as far away as Sudbury with spaces for 40 children. Besides STEM camps, PIR offers Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC) programs that bring experts into school classrooms via live video conferencing. PIR will run STEM summer camps at Fusion for the next five years, said camp director Drew Fallowfield. “The Fusion Centre is a great fit (for us),” he said, pointing out that the camp utilizes Fusion's various facilities, including its radio broadcast room, art room, music recording studio and Rebuild It room. Participants in the March Break STEM camp at Fusion had plenty of hands-on experiences during the week. They included creating objects with a 3-D printer, making simulated comets, looking into how remote control vehicles and doorbells work, studying alternative energy vehicles and learning about exotic animals like a tortoise and a cormorant. Ryan Marciniak, owner of Astronomy in Action, also set up his inflatable planetarium in Fusion's gym on Tuesday to give campers a tour of the night sky and launch a discussion about space.
