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 STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & design, and math).

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.
