Girls in STEM
- Are you a girl in Grades 6, 7, 8 or 9?
- Are you interested in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields?
- Are you a parent who knows a girl in Grades 6, 7, 8 or 9 who you would like to encourage to consider research or a career in the STEM fields?
Each year the Department of Mathematics, in partnership with other University of Toronto departments and industry partners, offers an annual Girls in STEM conference.
The next conference will take place on Saturday, May 6th, 2017.
The conference runs from 9:00am - 3:00pm and will feature speakers and workshops from across the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Please see the workshop topics and keynote lecture information here.
There is a $10 fee for the program but fee waivers are available.
The program is only open to girls currently in Grades 6, 7, 8 or 9 and spaces are limited. This program is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
