STEAM Webinars

STAN now offers webinars a few times a year, with themes designed to support the professional development our members. Aiming to provide information on a variety of subjects, we hope the webinars will help you see everyday problems in new ways, encourage you to reach further, and give you the tools needed to make science literacy more commonplace in Canada.

 

Webinars are always free for our members! They will be available to view live, or as a recording from our website (to facilitate viewers in different time zones).

Aliénor Béjannin

Running an afterschool program in STEM can be challenging. How do you engage teenagers and adults from different backgrounds in coding? Girls Who Code started their Clubs program in Canada less than a year ago and more than 200 Clubs have been launched since then. Aliénor Béjannin, who joined Girls Who Code as a Canada Partnership Coordinator, will share tips and strategies in order to inspire communities, particularly communities marginalized in STEM, to take the lead and run a successful program in computer science.
