"This event combines the excitement of sport with the rigours of science and technology. High school students will showcase their design and engineering skills and compete in Canada’s largest high school robotics competition.
With strict rules and limited resources, the teams have raised funds, designed a team brand, honed teamwork skills, and built and programmed robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Don’t miss the fleet of the most advanced intelligent robots and robotics teams from across Ontario.All FIRST Canada events are open to the public and free."
"One Girl Inspired (ages 8 – 10) and One Girl Encouraged (ages 11-13) brings girls together for incredible events filled with self esteem, confidence, leadership and empowerment activities to become strong and confident individuals, and to make the world a better place."

The WE ACT event was an amazing one this year! Over 800 attendees in Ottawa, Ontario filled the Shaw Centre with engaged, enthusiastic and committed men and women focused on encouraging young women into careers in STEM and providing support throughout their careers. Hope to see you at the next one!
"The Human Library™ is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers. A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered." Aldershot High School in Burlington will be holding an Exploring I-STEM Human Library on November 14. Excited to be involved!
"Junior STEM Club's program offerings build upon the Ontario curriculum for STEM-based learning. We currently offer 5 programs, Mini Innovators and Mini Coders for children ages 3-5, Junior Innovators, Junior Robotics and Junior Coders for children ages 6-9."
Check out this events page! If you haven't attended a FIRST competition, it is a must! A great way to engage in STEM with students developing skills in design, research, building, mechanics, structures, motors, report writing and coding.
