Girls in STEM: Crystals

January 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

JVS Toronto Skills Testing Icon

Calling all newcomer girls in high school! If you are a go getter, a high achiever, if you have an interest in science and technology, this program is for you!

Do you LOVE crystals but do you know what they are? For example, did you know that chocolate is a crystal? In this session, you will learn the chemistry of crystals and get an introduction to crystalline structures. After an interactive talk, participants will do an activity to grow crystals, with time for questions at the end.

The workshop will be lead by expert Dr. Erin McConnell, who completed her PhD in Chemistry at Carleton University and is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa. She’s a recipient of the NSERC and L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award.
