GirlSTEM Saturdays - Sydney

Oct 13, 2018 - Nov 3, 2018

Cape Breton University is hosting a program for girls to explore engineering. To give real world perspectives, we are looking for engineers to visit the camp to share their experiences in the profession. Each Saturday will focus on a different area of engineering so please pick a timeslot that reflects either your education or practice.
