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.

     

On August 3, 2013 we are honoured to have Stephanie Bourque share her knowledge around the computer and the secrets it holds. As children work on activities throughout the workshop dissecting a computer, kinda like dissecting a frog, girls will have the chance to walk away with a better understanding of "What does the inside of a computer or other electronic gadget look like?"

 

Stephanie Bourque is an employee at the Microsoft Store while studying Computer Programming and Analysis at Seneca College. Through school and work she has gained a skillset that is both nerdy and community oriented. She has helped mentor previous coding and technology focused workshops with girls learning code as well as the TDSB (Toronto District School Board) and loves teaching others about computers. She has also hosted a number of workshops about open source development at school, and app development in the Microsoft Store.

 

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.
