At Discovery Western, we are proud of our tradition of promoting the participation of young women in engineering. One of our premier programs in this area is our Winter Girls Club.
Winter Girls Club runs for eight Saturdays in the Spencer Engineering Building on Western University's campus during the months of January to March. The specific dates for the program are January 6 to March 3, 2018, excluding February 17. The cost for the program is $150 which includes meeting with mentors, take-home projects, snacks, a t-shirt and much more! Registration is now closed.
Session times are:
- Grades 3-5: 10am-12pm
- Grades 6-8: 1pm-3pm
With this program, we hope to grow the creativity and curiosity of our participants by providing them with a fun, positive, and safe environment for them to learn and practice engineering. Each session is themed to explore a specific type of engineering and includes games, hands-on activities, design projects and a break with a peanut-free snack.
Special guests/mentors from the engineering community are included in most sessions with these mentors not only act as role models for our students but also are able to inspire our students with their research and work experience. Additionally, each participant receives a t-shirt and certificate as part of their registration.
We would like to make this program as accessible as possible, so if you require financial assistance please review our bursary application when registering your child.
