In the fall of 2012, BrainSTEM Alliance worked with Girls Inc of Nothern Alberta to organize and coordinate their Operation S.M.A.R.T. Program.

Our founder, D”Andre Wilson, designed a 8-week Engineering Saturdays program that introduced girls aged 11-14 to basic engineering concepts in the areas of; Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Aeronatical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Mining Engineering, Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

The young girls had a great time in the program and many exclaimed that they wanted to become engineers when they grow up.

Many thanks goes out to the female engineers from the Suncor EIT program, that dedicated their time to inspire these young girls!
