Femmes In STEM!: International Women and Girls in Science Day

For Guide Groups using one link, please enter the number of attendees from 1 to 35, under the Group Rate. The Group rate is a flat rate of $10 based on 1 link for a Girl Guides unit, and the leader will get 1 link to share within the group.

Looking for something engaging and fun to do with your units in early February!?!

Join us for a fun-packed, virtual evening for FEMMES in STEM!

We wanted to celebrate International Women and Girls in Science Day in a special way, and what better way than to invite our future inventors, solution-creators and world changers…..the Girl Guides of Canada

We’ll start off the evening by chatting with a couple of amazing role model women in STEM.

Then get ready to jump into an exciting at-home STEM challenge that we will facilitate along with your girls, using materials that can be found around the home (List will be sent out the week prior in the event reminder email).

Then we’ll finish off the evening with a Q&A open discussion for the girls with our fabulous Femmes in STEM.

Registration is limited, so please claim your spots early.

When you register, you will need to know how many girls you will need access links for. The registration link will be sent out the day before event takes place, so please make sure the contact email you provide us with is for a guider that is capable of distributing the link to her unit members before the event takes place.

**For units in the greater Edmonton Area, we have awe-inspiring buttons of our favourite Femmes in STEM available for units that can arrange for curbside pick-up!!!

TinkHER: Virtual Maker Club

Do you know a girl ages 12-17 with lots of ideas, who loves to get hands-on, and has a passion to solve problems? Then TinkHER is a one-of-a-kind club for her!

There are lots of online workshops for digital content and for hands-on content, but one combines them all into one!

Club Meeting times: 9:30 -- 11:00 am on Saturdays from January 16, 23, 30, and February 6. Final Showcase on Thursday, February 11, as part of TWOSE Special Event to celebrate International Women and Girls in Science Day. This will run as a 4 week-long (once a week) virtual club/course where girls from ages 12-17 will get to develop self- confidence and self-efficacy through the creative design process, skill-building and invention. Through learning digital skills like coding and using microcontrollers, as well as material skills like using simple hand tools, participants will gain practice using skills to invent something new. Participants will receive a pre-course kit with necessary materials and tools for using in the club activities. There will be a post-course virtual event planned to showcase their inventions on TWOSE social media. There will also be a pre and post event surveys to obtain measurable data for course evaluation and for reporting. These consist of 90 minute virtual meetings every Saturday morning at 9:30 am for participants to meet, discuss schedule for the day, learn about new lessons and expectations then answer any questions. Every day participants will be given access to digital resources to guide them through learning and practicing new skills while working on a project. These will include in-house made tutorial videos, online documents, and access to other exciting digital learning tools.

TinkHER: Virtual Maker Club is a safe and positive virtual space for those that identify as girls. It is supported daily by Jen, our Science Garage Staff Scientist, who has loads of experience facilitating empowering workshops for Girls in STEAM.
