Black Gold School Divisions’ 4th Girls in STEM Day is on Monday, March 13 at West Haven Public School!
“We’re super excited and ready, but first we’d like to take a moment to thank our wonderful sponsors for their support in helping to make the day fun and inspiring for our students,” said event organizer Tarynne Cable.
Girls in STEM Day exposes young women to the unique and exciting possibilities available in the science, technology, and engineering sectors, and sends the message that girls should not shy away because of perceived gender roles or stereotypes.
“Girls in STEM gives us unique opportunities to bring in special guests as well as local specialists, including Black Gold alumni, to serve as positive female role models while leading our girls through various interactive sessions,” said Cable. “Each session will include career connections and a reflection of the learning.”
In prior years, the sessions included presentations and workshops led by engineers, programmers, web designers, and even an astronaut/aquanaut from the Canadian Space Agency.
