GIRLS and STEAM Symposium and Showcase

I was invited to contribute to the Girls and STEAM Symposium and Showcase that will take place on Saturday, November 1st at TELUS World of Science. My colleague Wes Wong is one of the organizers. I am glad I can contribute to this event as a mentor and as a volunteer. More than 150 grade 6-8 girls from all over BC attended the event. It was a very special experience for them and for the volunteers:
