Hands-On Science Workshops (Visiting Scientists)
Our Role Model volunteers develop and deliver fun, hands-on science activities in their area of expertise. Girls and boys get to meet real scientists and hear about what they do.

STEM Activity Workshop Kits
These kits come with everything you need to run a STEM activity with your class. Alternatively, share it with a group of students to run their own workshop. Every kit features a profile of a female Canadian scientist as well as STEM positive keepsakes (e.g. colour changing I heart Science pencils). WE ARE CURRENTLY PUTTING THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THESE. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN JANUARY 2018 for DETAILS.
Our current kits include:
- Whatchamacallit tubes: Scientific Process
- Building Fractals: Sierpinski Triangle, a Math Exploration
- Busting Stereotypes: Science Careers
- (in progress) Mammoth Snot: Ancient pollen, a Palaeontology Activity
AGE: ~10-19, GENDER: All
eMentoring is an 8-week online mentoring program which connects senior high school girls with female mentors working in a STEM field. Each week the pairs are provided with prompts for the conversations. It runs twice yearly, in the Spring and in the Fall.
AGE: ~15-19, GENDER: Identifies as female
Quantum Leaps Conferences
STEM career conferences organized by youth. We provide funds, guidance (through a conference manual), and help finding speakers. Our STEM activity workshop kits can also be used during the conference.
AGE: ~15-19, GENDER: There must be at least 50% female speakers and organizers.
Ellen Tamblyn, a grade 12 student in BC created 6 portraits of female Canadian scientists. These are available as 8.5″X11″ posters for your class. Contact us for your free posters.
