About Science Fare Media

Welcome to Science Fare Media, the world’s newest – and Canada’s first – online and interactive Sci-Tech and Health News Organization!

The flagship component of Science Fare Media, Science-Fare.com will provide you with the latest journal discoveries and the science behind the headlines in a way that’s interesting and engaging, while being conversational and fun. 

Science Fare Media will also release an audio cast, Science Fare’s Public Square. We’ll go one-on-one with the scientists behind the research and the experts behind the news, to inspire tomorrow’s researchers, promote collaboration between today’s and give the average science enthusiast more than the superficial.

Leading operations is emerging science journalist, Lee Flohr.  After receiving a degree in biochemistry from the University of Lethbridge, he moved to the media capital of Canada, Toronto, to study online and broadcast journalism at one Canada’s leading journalism institutions, Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. 

While there, two of his stories were recognized by Columbia University’s Scholastic Press Association and another led to a research policy change that’s positively benefited multiple sclerosis patients, worldwide.

The majority of his work has appeared Discovery Channel Canada’s, Daily Planet, where as an intern, he produced over a hundred pieces of science news and co-produced hundreds more. 

He’s also filed about a hundred stories for Biotechnology Focus and Laboratory Focus Magazines, trade publications that focus on aspects of Canada’s Biotechnology Industry.

His latest investigation, a joint one with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation took a look at the science behind a multi-million dollar public transit fraud, analyzing the content of the first fake, bi-metallic transit tokens, circulating in Canada’s largest City. 

The results of that investigation led to the creation of an undergraduate, laboratory exercise at the University of Toronto.  It introduces tomorrows engineers to the technology used in the investigation, providing an interesting application of the technology they’ll undoubtedly come into contact with throughout their careers.

All this, he says, doesn’t make him an expert, but helps him to ask meaningful questions that help him to translate science into a story that reaches out to both scientists and science enthusiasts, alike.
