Record breaking attendance is the best indicator of another successful Girls STEM Up conference has come to a happy end this past weekend at the Fredericton Convention Centre. 14 exceptional University of New Brunswick post-secondary students rallied together to organize the second Girls STEM Up conference this year. Over 300 delegates attended the conference and participated in breakout sessions, listened to keynote speakers and took part in hands out workshops.
The conferences theme was discover and under the discovery umbrella there were 7 pillars which the conference was centered around . Each session was focused on communicating the objective of getting young women to discover what community, creativity, impact, passion, potential, strength and voice meant to them.
Thank you to the Girls STEM Up executive for the opportunity to be the title sponsor of this amazing event, and to our volunteers who took their time to help encourage the next generation to discover science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
