Event Details

      This is our second 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.

     

      On July 6th, 2013 hEr VOLUTION along with Abigail Kell (Abby) from WOMEN OF INFLUENCE will introduce young girls and women to the Fun Side Of Math. Abigail Kell comes with a Bachelor of Mathematics - Honours - degree from Carleton University and she continues to tutor high school students on this subject.  She love teaching kids to not be afraid of Math and show them how it can be enjoyable and useful. Abbigail works as part of the WOMEN OF INFLUENCE team with a focus on supporting women's lives be it in their business or personal particualrly through the Execute Certificate in Leadership program. Abbigail along WOMEN OF INFLUENCE is comminted make a difference in the community by influencing the next generation of women that math can be fun. Topics of discussion for this session will include asnwers for questions such as: 

  • How is Math actually used in interesting ways? 
  • How are numbers beautiful? 

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 best suits young girls ages 11 to 15 and will be held at the Microsoft Store, conveniently located inside Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
