On Thursday March 7th, 2013, 160 like-minded young women attended the Inspiring Future Women in Science conference held at Perimeter Institute.  These young women shared a passion for science and were given an opportunity to learn more about the rewards, challenges and possibilities of a STEM career. Please check back in January for details and registration information for our 2015 event.


  Dr. Adriana Ocampo, NASA Planetary Geologist, delivered a keynote address describing the life of a planetary geologist and offered words of wisdom to the young women in attendance.
