We put out the call for all future scientists, inventors and innovators age 11-13, and they answered!

 

On Saturday, November 7, 2020 over 2500 girls joined us for the third annual Girls and STEAM — an action-packed day of virtual workshops and mentorship from real professionals who are making incredible contributions to the world of science, technology, engineering, art and design and math (STEAM).

This year’s inspirational keynote speakers was our superhero and world-famous nerd, BC’s Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, as well as one of Canada’s most influential nerds in ocean conservation, marine biologist Dr. Sarika Cullis-Suzuki.

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