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, and should be aged 12 - 18.

To ensure that girls across Atlantic Canada have the opportunity to participate in our summer programs, we ask that each person attends a maximum of three of our 2020 Online Summer Series programs (not including reunions). Those who attend and participate in three programs (including reunions) will also receive a special reward!

About our Panelists

Dr. Ellen Boyd was born and raised in New Brunswick and studied environmental science and biology before completing the veterinary medicine program at the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island. She is an Emergency Veterinarian at the Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Center!

Liz Goetzl has loved the ocean since she was young and has had that same love for animals for just as long. She did a graduate degree in Marine Mammal Science at the University of Miami and is currently finishing a veterinary nursing degree. She currently lives in Miami and works as the Veterinary Nurse for a small group of bottlenose dolphins in the Florida Keys!

Rhiannon Kirton grew up in the UK and Australia, and attended the University of Manchester in England studying zoology, or the "study of animals". She is currently a Graduate Student at Western University studying the interactions between deer and hunters, and has experience working with a wide range of animals, including grizzly bears, frogs, fruit bats, and Tasmanian devils!

Taylor Francis is from Miami, Florida, where as a teenager she started volunteering at local wildlife rescue organizations and had the opportunity to work hands on with all kinds of animals including reptiles, birds, and even big cats. She earned a degree in communications and is working towards a career that combines wildlife and nature education with community outreach.

About Terranaut Club

Terranaut Club is a non-profit organization based in Nova Scotia 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!
