Terrace Quantum Leaps 会议 [活动回顾]



On Nov 12, Northwest Science & Innovation Society (NSIS) had its 6th Quantum Leaps Conference.  It was held in partnership with the University of Northern BC at their Terrace, BC campus.

38 young women in Grades 10 to 12 from Terrace and Kitimat attended to hear a wide range of local women talk about their experiences in science, technology and engineering.  Their keynote speaker was Amy Klepeter, RN, Associate Professor and Nursing Program Coordinator at UNBC.  She was joined by 9 professional women including a Dentist, an Environmental Scientist, a Civil Engineer, a Metallurgist, a Forester, and more. 

Feedback from the attendees:

“我感到经验丰富! 我第三年在这里! 我对以某种形式的科学毕业并继续学业感到非常兴奋。 我觉得Quantum Leaps确实启发和激励了我。”


“我认为这次会议非常有帮助,并且有助于使人们对他们想参加的事情有想法。 听到别人的经验也很酷。”

我对自己的职业选择有所了解; 对不同的职业更有信心; 希望继续接受教育; 更兴奋,并希望继续我的职业生涯。”


Thank you to everyone who made this happen, especially the women who volunteered their time to share their experiences with the attendees. Well done, NSIS, and congratulations on another successful Quantum Leaps!
