As the founder of the Scientist in Residence Program, Dr. Paige Axelrood developed and built an educational program to support teachers and help students discover their inner scientist. Elementary students across the Vancouver School District have experienced real science and discovered the natural world through the Scientist in Residence Program. Paige’s vision to partner teachers with scientists to facilitate hands-on, inquiry-based lessons has helped change the delivery of science education.

Acknowledging community service highlights the importance of helping others and the multitude of positive ripples that unfold. The Scientist in Residence Program has been a labour of love from its inception in my daughter’s kindergarten classroom. I feel deeply honoured to have received a BC Achievement Community Award acknowledging this work...and I'm incredibly grateful to many people who have brought creativity and success to the program.
