Event Details

      Welcome to hEr VOLUTION's FUN workshop from our series of workshops designed to empower, educate and feed the curiosity of girl and young women's thirsty minds. 


      These workshops are intended to spark an interest for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in young women, ages 7-15 years.  Workshops will involve hands-on learning, led by professionals and innovators in their field, with students being motivated to consider STEM as an exciting educational and/or career option. With advanced insights into the fundamentals of STEM-based topics, our goal is for students to feel engaged and to take away valuable resources including access to a network of potential mentors.


        Forensic science (often known as forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences and technologies to investigate and establish facts of interest in relation to criminal or civil law.

      Christine Handy is a 24 year veteran with the Toronto Police Service, being hired as a police constable in 1989. She has been a qualified forensic identification officer and has worked in the field of forensics doing crime scene investigations for the past 17 years. For the last 3 years Christine had been working as  a lab specialist and she has received several commendations for her work in the field of forensics including being named police officer of the month for August 2012.


     Because of her passion for forensics, Christine Handy had been recently featured in an article on The Globe and Mail, Behind the scenes at the Toronto Police Service forensic unit

     On August 10, 2013 we are honoured to have Christine Handy share her knowledge as we discover the world of forensic science. As children work on activities throughout the workshop, we will answer the question of "How do investigators find information even long after something has happened?"

     Donations are welcome and will be used for future programming. Each ticket purchase will receive a copy of Women of Influence magazine to take home. The event will be held at the Microsoft Store, conveniently located inside Yorkdale Shopping Centre.  


We would like to thank our Sponsors
