Girls and STEAM 2021

Over 500 girls aged 11-13 joined us for the 2021 Girls and STEAM event!

On Saturday, November 6, 2021 future scientists, inventors and innovators joined us for the fourth annual Girls and STEAM—an action-packed day of virtual workshops and mentorship from professionals making incredible contributions to the world of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & design, and math).

Neuroscientist and Science Communicator Dr. Samantha Yammine, aka @ScienceSam, and BC’s Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry delivered inspiring messages and whale researchers, video game designers and immunologists shared their experience and expertise.

We couldn’t have done this without the generous support of our partners who worked with us to produce engaging virtual workshops and mentorship panel discussions, as well as fantastic pre-recorded activities.
