Are you interested in hosting a group of CAGIS girls and teaching them about what you do?
CAGIS events typically are 1.5 to 2 hours in length and occur on a weekend or weeknight after school. Events often occur at the workplace of the host to give the girls a behind-the-scenes view of science, technology, trades, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in action. When a workplace is not conducive to hosting a group of girls, the chapter can book a room for the event instead.
Events typically include some information about the host’s area of expertise and fun, hands-on activities. CAGIS chapter volunteers will discuss the outline and contents of the event with you and can help brainstorm activities if needed, to ensure that the event is engaging and age-appropriate.
Event hosts are varied and include:
– STEM professionals
– Companies and industries
– Not-for-profit organizations
– Individuals with other areas of expertise who are familiar with the STEM involved (e.g. the physics of skating)
