With financial assistance from our supporters and Actua, SuperNOVA works toward ensuring ALL youth can be inspired and empowered by STEM, regardless of their geographic location, socio-economic situation, ability, or gender.

We achieve this by offering specialized outreach initiatives, providing support services, and through the the development of unique partnerships with communities and youth-serving organizations throughout Atlantic Canada. 

By consulting with community stakeholders and sharing resources and expertise, our collaborative approach maximizes the impact, relevancy, and accessibility of each of our community-based outreach initiatives.
