Laura is an impressive and competent educator, completing her double Masters in both environmental management at UNB, and science in forestry and agriculture at the University of Eastern Finland. She is a leader, mentor and teacher in both team sports and the classroom. Laura brings a unique perspective and depth of experience to our part of the woods.

Braeden graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences and a Bachelor of Education in Secondary Science from the University of Calgary. With Braeden’s former science classroom teaching experience, he strives to bring relevant hands-on learning opportunities to students and teachers alike. He inspires students with his contagious enthusiasm and passion for science. Braeden loves “light-bulb moments” from students and encourages everyone to make authentic connections with the real world. When not planning an engaging education program, Braeden can be found in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or hiking with friends in the mountains.
If Alberta nominated a “Mr. Water,” there is a very good chance David Hill would be awarded this distinction. From his days working in the world of irrigation farming to his role at Alberta Innovates supporting water research across the province and now to his new role at the University of Lethbridge, David has been a champion for water education. David’s water expertise has been invaluable to Inside Education’s water education programming. If you ever have a chance to see his water pictures from around the world…do it!
