I didn’t have time to relax after getting off the C3 icebreaker as the mission of Leacross is to continue educating women and children to become more informed, more involved and more dynamic.
UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA – NSERC
So the month of December was taken up following up with some our grantees. Catherine Mavriplis is the NSERC chair for Women in Science and Engineering at the University of Ottawa.
I had a chance to meet up with engineering students who are taking leadership training in their fields. It was also inspiring seeing Makerspace, https://engineering.uottawa.ca/makerspace student run labs with 3D printers. This educational outreach allows engineers to visit schools to teach youth how to use designs and create concrete inventions with the printers.
A FUTURE IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
Catherine works tirelessly to promote women in STEM fields, and it is evidenced with www.scieng-women-ontario.ca/en/kids-and-parents/a -future-in-science-and-engineering/
Here is just a few of the interviews, check out our Facebook page ( fb.me/leacrossfoundation.ca ) for more women in science and more information on in science and engineering.
Nearing International Women’s Day reconfirms my commitment at the Leacross Foundation to remember our job is not done until both genders are comfortable with equal treatment. (more…)
