Chair of Grants & Community Outreach
Daisy is in her fifth year of a Computing Science degree. After serving as VP ISC last year, she returns as a member of the Board in hopes that she can help continue and make the event a success for future participants! She wants to be able to provide these opportunities for high school students to be exposed to all different fields of science. In her free time, she likes to cook, play board games, and enjoy a hot cup of coffee.
Chair of Innovations & Events
Connor is a recent science and education graduate from the University of Alberta. He's been volunteering with TeamUP Science for 3 years primarily with CSW, HSW, and EW. Connor is a fan of the interactive approach to STEM TeamUP Science provides to underprivileged populations in Alberta.

Student Group Advisor U of A North Campus
Jennifer is TeamUP Science’s Student Group Advisor for North Campus for the 2023-2024 term. She has gotten her start in science education as a Health Science Workshop Assistant Director in 2021-2022. From there, she was elected to be Vice President Event for 2022-2023. Since then, she has graduated and started her career as a pediatric dietitian. Part of the reason she continues to stay involved with TeamUP Science is because she supports TeamUP’s philosophy to make science education accessible, while introducing everyone to opportunities available in every field. She has been able to take the concepts of science education and knowledge translation during her time with TeamUP into her professional practice along with the positive energy from all TeamUP members! Jennifer is looking forward to supporting TeamUP executives in developing and delivering more science education opportunities! During her free time, you can find her spending time with her dog, Lucy (she is the master of the house), discovering new coffee and pastry shops, and learning whatever arts and crafts she has decided to pick up at the moment! If you see her around, feel free to stop her for a chat!
