Webinar: Widening & Increasing the Participation of Youth in STEM
This video was produced by YouthREX.
HERE'S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:
Why is it critical to engage underrepresented youth in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)? How can we widen and increase the participation of girls, racialized youth, and young people from low-income and marginalized communities in STEM programs?
This engaging and interactive discussion explored the importance of providing equal access to STEM opportunities, and how these opportunities can be designed to engage youth not typically represented in STEM fields.
Our guests for this critical conversation included:
- Dr. Eugenia Duodu, CEO, Visions of Science Network for Learning
- Sheri Lynn Koscielski, Windsor Essex FIRST Robotics
- Doina Oncel, Founder/CEO, hEr VOLUTION
- Sanaa Syed, former STEMing UP Participant, hEr VOLUTION, and current Dev Degree Intern Ottawa @Shopify
