The Future Women in Science and Engineering Conference aims to introduce female high school students to the range of opportunities available in pursuing engineering and science as an academic program and future career. The conference is open to high school students in Ontario and is to be held on Saturday, January 10, 2015. The conference includes breakfast, opening remarks, keynote address, eight workshops, lunch and an open house for clubs and teams. Workshops will range from interactive presentations given by student teams and faculty members to facility tours and a student panel.
The objective of this conference is to encourage females in high school to consider engineering and science as a potential career. Activities are designed to engage students and instill confidence in their own abilities.
This event is not only beneficial to the incoming students but it is beneficial to the Queen’s students as well. Volunteers for the day will be educating the participants on the engineering program and sharing their experiences thus far. This gives our volunteers a chance to act as mentors for the participants and spark an interest in the field.
