A virtual networking event from Science World in collaboration with SCWIST for students to explore unusual STEAM careers with mentors.
About this event
What kind of careers do you think are possible within STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and design, and math) industries? More than you can imagine!
In collaboration with the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST), Girls and STEAM: Unusual STEAM Careers will provide girls aged 12-16 with the opportunity to meet and network with women who are making incredible contributions to the world of STEAM.
With a focus on unconventional careers in STEAM, participants will get the chance to learn about wider career choices available to them; connect with like-minded peers; and equip themselves with knowledge that will ease their transition from high school to higher education.
The event will begin with an introduction of our mentors, followed by three breakout rooms to give participants a chance to interact with different mentors.
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.
