The program matches girls who are interested in science and engineering with female scientists and engineers who communicate with them online, providing guidance and sharing information. The goal is to give girls the confidence to excel in math and science and spark their desire to pursue a career in science, technology or engineering.
Since 2001, both faculty members and students from the Schulich School of Engineering have served as mentors. The school has also hosted many special events and presentations to help the program grow beyond its online presence.
