Develop your interest,
Build your future.
The Girls in STEM Olympics is a FREE event for girls in grades 8-12 to discover opportunities in STEM.
This day-long competition/conference provides participants with a network of other like-minded individuals from around the GTA, compete in fun STEM-related activities, listen to keynote speakers, speak with industry professionals and universities, and learn about different ways they can get involved in STEM before post-secondary.
This is an exciting way to build confidence, create connections, network, and most of all is a safe place to discuss the challenges females face in post-secondary STEM education and the workplace!
