A networking event from Science World for youth to explore STEAM careers.
About this event
What do an ultra-marathon runner, a DJ and a contortionist all have in common? They are all STEAM professionals you get to network with at Science World’s next Girls and STEAM Mentor Café!
Join us on August 21 to learn about the inspiring and wonderful ways STEAM professionals balance their careers with dynamic hobbies and side gigs. This exploration of “secret Identities” will connect students with women who are making incredible contributions to the world of STEAM, like-minded peers, and discover how you can embrace every part of yourself no matter your career choice.
While the terms "women" and "girls" are used in our event, Girls and STEAM invites participants and mentors who identify as women, girls, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, two-spirit, and gender questioning.
The event will begin with an introduction of our mentors, followed by three breakout rooms where participants can network with each mentor.
