CS Girls Rock – Workshop in Computer Science for Young Women

The CEMC Workshop in Computer Science for Young Women exists to encourage young women, and people of other under-represented genders,* who are considering computer science as a career for the first time. It is a unique opportunity designed to ignite enthusiasm for computer science in interested students from across Canada who have had little or no previous exposure to computer science. Attendees learn that computer science is about much more than using and programming computers.

Read quotes from past participants

Intended Audience

We welcome applicants who are female or another gender identity under-represented in computer science*. Applicants must be in grade 9 and 10, have an interest in mathematics, and currently attend a Canadian high school or middle school. Participants should not have attended any similiar workshop.

Dates and Location

Saturday, May 11 to Saturday May 18, 2019 at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario.

Cost

There is a $150 registration fee, including applicable taxes, to be paid after invited applicants have received their confirmation package.

  • Accommodations, meals and other expenses for the week are included at no extra cost.
  • Air fare expenses will also be paid by the CEMC.

Applying to Attend

The application deadline for 2019 has passed.

Applications are typically accepted from mid-January to mid-February. Applicants write a short essay explaining why they would be a good candidate. They must also have a Math, Science or Computing teacher fill out an on-line reference on their behalf. We are looking for participants with an interest in mathematics but little or no previous exposure to computer science. All applications must be completed by February 25, 2019. Applicants will be notified about acceptance around Wednesday, March 21st, 2019.

Who is selected?

We receive many applications for this workshop. We typically receive more qualified applicants than spots available, and we use lotteries to select among similarly qualified applicants. We are looking for participants with an interest in mathematics but little or no previous exposure to computer science. It is rare for two students from the same school to be selected. Applicants will be notified about acceptance in late March.

*Why This Audience?

Computer science is a powerful tool, and diversity among computer scientists increases the potential for positive impact. One of the initiatives of the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing is to encourage better gender diversity in the field of computer science. See https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/wics/resources-and-information/statistics for recent statistics on gender diversity in computer science. Following the lead of University of Waterloo, CEMC recognizes those whose gender identity is neither male nor female, including gender-fluid, non-binary, agender and more. oSTEM indicates that these gender identities are under-represented in STEM fields.

NAV Canada – Explore Aviation Summer Camp (FREE)

​​Are you a teen who has what it takes to leave ordinary behind? If you do, then NAV CANADA’s Explore Aviation Summer Camp is made for you!

With the success of last year’s inaugural camp, NAV CANADA is announcing the second edition of the Explore Aviation Summer Camp for teens. Last summer, 30 students attended the first edition of the camp and it was an experience they described as “awesome” and “one of the best weeks of my life”.

“For me the interesting part is that you get to see the layers of aviation. We would say ‘there’s the pilot, there’s the person in the tower’ but there’s so many people in between and there’s so many career opportunities. I feel that I can go anywhere,” explained camper Monica Muresan who attended the camp last year.

This summer, 24 young women and 24 young men entering Grade 10 high school (or secondary 4 in Quebec) from across Canada will gather in Cornwall, Ontario. Their mission: one week of learning, fun and friendship with a focus on aviation. This all-expenses-paid camp uses hands-on learning to give you the chance to explore exciting careers that will empower you to soar to success after graduation! ​

​Who can apply: ​Teens going into Grade​​ 10 or secondary 4 in September 2019
​Where: ​NAV CENTRE, Cornwall, ON, with day trips to Montreal and Ottawa
​When: ​Young women: July 14-19, 2019
Young men:​ August 11-16, 2019
​Cost: ​No cost to you! It’s paid for by a NAV CANADA bursary, which includes flight, room and board for the week
​Why: ​To inspire you to explore a career in aviation​

Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada

The Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada is a fully-funded, 3-week exchange program to the United States, including stays in upstate New York and Washington, D.C. The goal is for students (age 15-18) to learn leadership skills and then return home and implement a community service project.

The Youth Ambassadors Program particularly strives to select students who have limited travel experience to the United States, are new Canadians, are from under-represented populations, or are indigenous Canadians.
