Grade 9 girls attend inspiring science conference at the Perimeter Institute

On March 6, several of our grade 9 girls attended the “Inspiring Future Women in Science Conference” at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo.

They got a chance to experience the excitement of Perimeter’s cutting-edge research first-hand. This half-day event exposed them to the rewards, challenges and possibilities of a career in science.

Female panellists from a variety of industries in scientific fields discussed their decision to pursue a career in science, the challenges they have faced, and the rewards of their chosen careers.
