    Episode 2 - Stella Bowles

    On today’s episode, I’m joined by CWSF 2017 & 2018 alumni, Stella Bowles who was recently awarded the Order of Nova Scotia for her commitment to cleaning up the LaHave River. Her 2017 science fair project garnered quite some attention on social media, influencing three levels of government and prompting a $15.7m action plan to clean up her local river. She’s been awarded numerous conservation & environmental awards for her work, been recognized as an emerging environmental leader, and even travelled to Ecuador as a member of the Canadian Youth Ambassador program. Having spoken at multiple TedX events, moderated various virtual webinars and even written a book called My River: Cleaning up the LaHave River with author Anne Laurel Carter, needless to say, I’m very excited for today’s conversation.   

    Please show your support for Stella as we welcome her to the Why to How Podcast, where we explore adventures in STEM.

    We're very excited to announce our first guest for the Why to How: Adventures in STEM podcast - Ann Makosinski!   

    Ann is a 23-year-old student, serial inventor and media darling doing numerous global appearances and keynote talks. Having participated in science fairs since Grade 6, she won a gold medal at CWSF2013 for her project Hollow Flashlight, and in that same year won the Google Science Fair, presented at two different TedX events and was named in Time Magazine's 30 Under 30 list. In 2014, two more TedX events, 4 awards at the International Science & Engineering Fair as well as presenting her eDrink mug on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon rounded out another big year for Ann. Since then, the awards, brand ambassador campaigns and public speaking appearances have continued to keep her busy, she's founded her own company Makotronics Enterprises, filed numerous patents and still found time to enrol as a student at the University of British Columbia to study Arts & English Literature.
