Girl Guides

GIRL GUIDES

On WiSE Girl Guide Badge Days, Girl Guides from the Kingston area come to Queen’s campus for a day to take part in hands-on engineering and science activities while learning about the important role women have in STEM. At the end of the day, the girls will have met their badge requirements to earn a Girl Guides badge related to science and/or engineering.

All of the volunteers in this program are undergraduate students currently studying different areas of science or engineering. It is a great opportunity for girls to gain some exposure to various fields.
