Workshop for Girls interested in STEM + CONTEST!

As many of you know, I am a huge advocate for getting girls interested and involved in STEM careers. By chance, I found hEr_Volution on twitter one day in my daily twitter travels and was immediately interested in getting involved.

hEr_Volution (http://www.hervolution.org/is a brand new organization in Toronto created to empower women in STEM and inspire the next generation of young women to consider a STEM career. They are currently putting on a great series of workshops in partnership with Microsoft Canada for young girls ages 5-14 with various STEM experts to spark that interest as well as raise money for the organization. Doina, the CEO invited me to present one of their upcoming workshops and I couldn't say no! (And no, I'm not calling myself an expert!)

Science of Cures EventBrite

I will be presenting "The Science of Cures" on August 24th, 2013 at 11:00am @ The Microsoft Store in Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Toronto, ON. I'm going to be speaking about how Diseases work, how vaccines are researched and why they are important in the medical field. Tickets are available for purchase on the EventBrite Page but I thought I'd be great to run a contest on my blog for my readers as well.

Here's how it works - I have 2 tickets I will be giving away to the workshop. To enter, leave a comment below on who you'll be giving the ticket to and why they'd love to be there. Winner must be a youth under 18 years of age. You can also tweet about the giveaway and follow me on twitter for extra entries. I'll be drawing the winner on
August 10th. 
Giveaway extended until **August 14th!**
