ms infinity event
Quantum Leaps Burnaby
Date: Saturday March 28, 2015
Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
The Quantum Leaps conference is a daylong event designed to inspire young women to consider pursuing careers in Science and Technology. The program, which was first initiated by the Society of Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST), has been successfully run since 1990 in communities across British Columbia and the Yukon. Each conference features brilliant role models; Women who currently work in key positions in science-based occupations lead hands on workshops, and give lectures on their lives and careers. University students studying these various fields serve on panels addressing important questions from their experiences in post secondary. As fellow students in District 41, we understand that with graduation approaching it is common to have uncertainties with so many possibilities presented. This is why we have decided to bring the Quantum Leaps conference to grades 11 and 12 Burnaby students in order to aid the transition between high school and a higher education.
The conference would be held at UBC on March 28th, 2015, from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
