Bring a Girl to STEM Day

STEM Learning Lab Inc. and Million Women Mentors Canada are excited to announce Bring a Girl to STEM Day on Saturday, December 8, 2018. This event invites young girls from around the city to come and explore the exciting world of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and discover the bounty of career opportunities awaiting them in the STEM fields! This innovative event is filled with fun hands-on STEM activities that will inspire and engage girls from Grades K-12 in early engineering through electrical circuits, computer science and coding. In addition, the event will kick-off with short motivational speeches from inspiring women within our community.

GIRLS IN K-3: Doodle Bot! – Do you love art and robots? Build your very own Doodle Bot! Girls will learn all about circuitry to design their bot to draw on its own. The best part? You can take your Doodle Bot home!

Do you an old electric toothbrush sitting at home? If so bring it to our event to turn it into a robot! If not, no worries, we will provide one for you!

GIRLS IN 4-7: MicroBit – Code your own game! Participants will learn to code their very own reaction game using a MicroBit – a pocket-sized computer from BBC. Create your very own game board and test your reaction time against your friends!

GIRLS IN GRADES 7-12: ROBOT DANCE-OFF! – Have you ever seen a robot dance? Participants will code and program a real-world robot to move and dance to their favourite songs. The session will conclude with a robot dance-off!

***Please note that registration closes at 6:00PM on Friday December 7th 2018. Tickets are limited. This is a first-come, first-served event.

We look forward to enjoying the morning with you!
