Girls Inc. Operation S.M.A.R.T. Program with BrainSTEM Alliance

We are pleased to offer the S.M.A.R.T. Program (Science, Math, and Relevant Technology) for the 7th year. This 7 session program is designed to introduce girls aged 10-14* to engineering concepts. The program will consist of weekly 3 hour sessions that will include discussions of basic scientific theory as well as activities that will reinforce engineering principles and introduce the engineering disciplines.

Girls are often overly cautious in the lab or on the playground and have few chances to assess risks and solve problems on their own. This program creates a safe space to let girls learn to embrace their intellectual curiosity and trust their own judgment.

With generous financial support from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Suncor Energy Inc. the Fort McMurray United Way and Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) Education Foundation this program is free of charge. We work hard to remove financial barriers to ensure that we are able to uphold our mantra of “Inspiring ALL girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold.”

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta in Partnership with Jays Care Foundation: Girls At Bat

The program is specially designed for girls and women to make both playing and coaching feel fun and safe. Girls at Bat provides girls and young women who would normally sit on the side-lines, or not even go near the field, the courage to try. Once on the field, the program weaves fun and challenging baseball drills and skills with vital self-esteem, team-building and personal health activities to ensure that all participants gain far more than baseball skills.
