Youth Engagement. ms infinity (math and science = infinite possibilities) programs introduce girls to exciting career options and positive female role models in science and technology. Together, we bust the myths about scientists and their careers… you don’t need to wear a lab coat to be a scientist!
We’re here to help students:
Get hands-on with science – we hold conferences and workshops filled with fun activities, stories, and games. These are all designed to bring science to life.
Feel inspired towards a career – the most exciting careers are often ones students have never even heard of. We introduce jobs from all areas of science during our Quantum Leaps conferences and in our school or group visits (Hands-on science workshops).
Find support – girls get the support they need when deciding how to take their interest in science further with our eMentor program.
Secure volunteering opportunities – we provide volunteering opportunities for women in science-related careers or pursuing degrees in science.

New initiative! We want to reach you wherever you are!
With the help of some fantastic funding agencies, we are hoping to reach more girls in rural communities. Currently, our work is focusing on the rural and Northern areas of British Columbia. We want to learn more about how we can help inspire and support girls in these communities in the areas of science and technology. If you would like to work with us, please contact Lynn Westcott, our Northern BC program coordinator.
We would like to thank the following funding agencies for helping us with this.
