Thanks to the amazing support from FIRST Robotics Canada and the CanCode program we have been fortunate enough to offer a variety of coding and robotics workshops for Girls Inc. of York Region this fall!
We have been supporting girls in our community on their STEM learning journeys through Girls Inc. after school programs, evening workshops, and extracurricular clubs. The girls have been exploring LEGO and Dash robots alongside a variety of coding applications alongside their peers, mother-figures, father-figures, and grandparents!
Check out STEM Minds and Girls Inc. social media pages to see all of the exciting activities they have been getting up to!
About Girls Inc. of York Region
Girls Incorporated of York Region is a non-profit youth organization that is dedicated to empowering girls and young women to seek the highest quality of life possible. The programs that we offer are designed to help girls develop to the fullest of their capacities in all areas of life. We actively strive to enhance confidence and self-esteem in girls and young women, while giving them the skills and tools they need in order to be empowered, productive and contributing members of society. Girls are encouraged to develop their voice and to take an active role in shaping the programs that they choose to participate in.

Girls benefit from programs and strategies that build on their strengths and encourage them to explore meaningful possibilities for their futures.
