Mighty Molecules was founded in the Summer of 2018 by Bell High School student Mackenzie Huckvale. Mackenzie has always been passionate about science, and as she moved into her high school years and took upper-level science courses, she began to notice a lack of young women showing interest in STEM topics. This combined with her experience working with young kids as a camp counsellor led her to start Mighty Molecules. Her goal is to engage kids, especially young girls, with the world of STEM in a fun and memorable way.
Mighty Molecules has been recognized at the 2018 Ontario Centre of Excellence Make Your Pitch Competition, has appeared on CTV Ottawa and is supported by Invest Ottawa's Summer Company program for youth across Ontario.
