Connecting grade 8–9 students who identify as girls or gender diverse to mentors in STEAM.
Operation Minerva is a mentoring series aimed at inspiring girls and gender diverse students in grades 8–9 to feel a sense of belonging in the worlds of science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).
Through networking, story-sharing, team challenges and site visits with a diverse group of mentors, students will be able to envision their own future journeys in STEAM disciplines and build a community of people to share those journeys with. Specific focus will be placed on recruiting mentors and students who are from groups generally underrepresented in STEAM.
Operation Minerva is part of the new Beakerhead suite of education programs, offering dynamic learning opportunities that can go beyond the curriculum.
The cost of this program is $11 per student. Applications open in October 2023 so check back soon!
