AYVA supports



Many students across Canada will have a richer learning experience this year with the addition of classroom supplies that bring education out of the textbook and into curious hands.

AYVA is an Education industry supporter of The Canadian charity helps connect deserving K-12 classroom projects with interested donors through a crowdfunding website. In its first few years, it has helped teachers in publicly-funded schools purchase everything from a cooling unit to raise salmon eggs, to electric motors, to rocket supplies.


Mrs. Sekhon in Surrey, B.C. teaches children in primary classes. She knew that adding butterfly larvae would be a great addition to her class. “We have a diverse group of students who love playing outdoors and exploring nature. We have many English language learner students who have joined us recently and this is a great hands-on way to learning about nature, life cycles and basic needs of local animals, without a language barrier.”

Through and supporters like AYVA, Mrs. Sekhon’s students will marvel at the transformation from larvae to butterflies this year.

AYVA at the ASEE Conference in Indianapolis


In mid June, AYVA President Dianne Beveridge and Western Territory Manager, Stacey Metz attended the ASEE in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s theme was “360 Degrees of Engineering Education” and there were many sessions and workshops for attendees to take part in. The conference was well attended by educators and vendors from across the US and Canada.

Three of AYVA’s partners attended as exhibitors, displaying teaching equipment for a variety of engineering areas. TecQuipment, PASCO Scientific and PIGNAT were all in attendance and AYVA representatives were able to collaborate with them on new equipment and ideas to bring back to our customers to assist in reaching their educational goals.

Pictured is Stacey Metz, with PIGNAT representative Regis Rodriguez and PIGNAT’s mini distillation unit, which is similar to those that have been installed at schools across Canada.

We look forward to ASEE next year in Seattle, meeting with our partners in attendance and hope to see many of you there.
