Following the success of the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day at Ciena hosted in Ottawa earlier this year, we were inspired to organize a similar STEM event at our Ciena Montreal facility.  Our main goal is to inspire girls to pursue an education and career in STEM by demonstrating engineering concepts through hands-on activities.  Our initiative recognizes the value of exposing girls to STEM as early as possible so we are hosting a group of 24 girls from grades 6, 7, 8 and 9 (secondary 1 to 3). 

Also worth mentioning, is that we are hosting a fully bilingual english/french event and have a lab session planned that will focus on Ciena solutions and products. Here's to what we know will be a great event for all involved that we hope will be the first of many more in the near future!
