About this Event

What is a Career Seminar?

Career Seminars are 1.5 hour interactive panel discussions featuring womxn in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Math (STEM). We'll learn about the variety of career paths and roles in their field of study, followed by a question and answer period! Family members of participants welcome to join.

This event is FREE, but parents and guardians are encouraged to support our organization if they can, either through a donation on our website, or through our current Sticker & Magnet Fundraiser.

Who can attend?

To join in this Career Seminar, participants must be girls or gender minorities and reside in Atlantic Canada or Florida, and should be aged 12 - 18.

Good news! We've decided to remove the maximum number of events that each participant can attend this summer - now you can join as many as you like! Those who attend and participate in three of our summer programs this year (including reunions) will receive a special reward!

About our Panelists

We'll add more information about our panelists as we get closer to the date of the event - stay tuned!

About Terranaut Club

Terranaut Club is a non-profit organization collectively based in Nova Scotia and South Florida that offers science and nature exploration programs for girls and gender minorities at highly subsidized rates. We specifically aim to work with participants from underprivileged and/or underrepresented backgrounds, and our mission is to encourage them to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers, and to become environmental leaders in their own communities.

We were forced to postpone our signature hands-on summer programs until 2021, so we've developed our first "Online Summer Series" to create opportunities for us to engage with our amazing participants!

Let's get through this strange summer together!
