UQAM Presents “Women and Girls of Science 2021”



From February 1 to 11, the Science Centre and UQAM’s Faculty of Science present the 4th edition of the Women and Girls of Science event in a virtual format. This year’s theme is prototyping!

We’ve got an eleven-day virtual program in the works to mark February 11, the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science — because we all want to motivate and support every girl’s interest in science and technology. Online activities and content designed for parents and teachers alike.

Yes, of course! Boys are welcome too!



Free online program held over 11 days

Sign up for this Facebook event and get access to new content every day from February 1 to 11. Invite those budding scientists of yours to discover and explore science and technology and let them be inspired by women of science! The program includes a web-series, learning activities, stories of science, and more…!
