Terry Fox Secondary Teacher Edward Csuka has been awarded the 2022 CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics (British Columbia and Yukon) by the Canadian Association of Physicists in recognition of his passion for teaching physics, his leadership in organizing the Power of Ideas Exhibit, and his dedication in seeking funding to launch a new STEAM program in the school.
Edward shares, “In 2023, I am looking forward to travelling with this CAP award to a world-class physics institute where I can share ideas with leading physicists. I am also excited to see the continued, thriving growth of our innovative Terry Fox STEAM program."
