The Lassonde School of Engineering welcomed 16 female high school students to participate in the Helen Carswell STEAM Program for Women. This year the program ran over a two-week period in a completely virtual format. The program offered participants a paid research opportunity as lab assistants doing meaningful work in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).
Eight Lassonde undergraduate women in STEM joined the K2I Academy Team as mentors to develop leadership, mentorship and project management skills during this unique experience. Mentors were assigned to projects and consulted with Lassonde Faculty to develop the experience for high school student participants.
