Canadian Association for Girls in Science

cagis-portia-and-zakiaToday we’re joined by Zakia and Portia of the Canadian Association for Girls in Science (CAGIS). CAGIS runs workshops to encourage girls to engage in STEM fields. Offering events for girls ages 7-16, they want to drive an interest in equity and science through communication and outreach.

Their workshop at Maker Expo is Build Your Own Superbug, encouraging kids to learn about healthcare, antibiotics, and the creation of superbugs, all while making one to take home.
