Choices Conference

Would you like to help show girls in Grade 6 that science is fun, interesting and a career field where girls and gender minority students can excel? Volunteers are fundamental to the success of the CHOICES Conference, so join us for a fun and rewarding experience over Reading Week by sharing your passion for science or engineering with 600 grade six girls! Volunteer opportunities will open on November 6, 2020.

Science Activity Volunteers

Who: Undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, researchers, lab coordinators, industry professionals.

When: February 17 & 18, 2021 9:45 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

What: This is your chance to help deliver a hands-on lab activity for grade 6 girls. Activities should be interactive, engaging and fun! This is an excellent opportunity for you to share your science, engineering or technology interests with the students and to have a positive influence on a group of girls who are at a critical point in their educational pathway. The hands-on activities will be delivered virtually to groups of girls at their schools. Kits will be sent out prior to the conference and you will be matched with a few different schools to run the activity and talk to the students about your STEM career Journey!

We welcome creative new ideas for scientific activities that would fit the new virtual format.
