About SuperNOVA



SuperNOVA is a not-for-profit initiative of Dalhousie University that promotes science, engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM) to youth from 3 to 18 years of age.

Based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, we offer exciting and innovative workshops, summer camps, clubs, and community events throughout Atlantic Canada that provide youth with fun and rewarding experiences in STEM and nurture a life-long love of exploration, creativity, and academic achievement.

All SuperNOVA programs are designed to complement provincial learning outcomes and incorporate practices and policies recommended by provincial and national organizations with expertise in STEM outreach, youth development, and day camp management.

With the support and guidance of Dalhousie University, Actua, and our supporters representing the private and public sectors, we are able to enhance our core programs with specialized outreach initiatives and services that ensure ALL youth, regardless of their geographic location, socio-economic situation, ability or gender, can be inspired and empowered through STEM. 


In 2006, SuperNOVA received the Actua Award for Leadership and Innovation. This award was created in 1998 to recognize member organizations that have best exemplified the Actua spirit of innovation. To learn more about Actua, please visit them on the web at


SuperNOVA is delighted to be the recipient of the Actua Experience Award for 2016, which recognizes SuperNOVA's outreach work in our Go Where Kids Are program which reaches kids all over Atlantic Canada.
