On the last Saturday of each month, we’ll be offering a free online event featuring a womxn in STEM Guest Speaker. We at Terranaut Club believe it’s critically important for girls and gender minorities to see themselves represented in STEM careers, so we developed this Guest Speaker Series to offer our participants more (virtual) face time with womxn in these fields. Our Guest Speaker Series is open to girls+ (girls & gender minorities) who live in 🇨🇦 Atlantic Canada or 🇺🇸 Florida and meet the event’s suggested age range.
If you’re not able to tune in live, these events will be recorded and posted later on our YouTube page.
