Summer Staff 2021


Jamie is one of our instructors. She has a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Lethbridge. She is always bringing fun STEM facts wherever she goes, so don’t be scared to ask her for one. “Fun Fact: You typically only breath through one nostril at a time, every few hours one nostril needs a break and the other will take over”. In her spare time, she can be found roaming in the mountains camping, quadding, and fishing.

Michael is one of your instructors at DE. He is currently working towards a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Bachelor of Education at the University of Lethbridge. He has always been fascinated by science and grew up wanting to be a 'scientist,' and he can't wait to share his love for STEM. He loves playing and watching sports and has even played rugby for Canada.
