The Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) is hosting a camp for the Girl Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers of New Brunswick and PEI on the University of New Brunswick’s Fredericton (UNBF) campus on May 12-13, 2018. During this event, over 500 girls aged 9-17 will participate in mini-workshop sessions aimed at increasing awareness and engagement in Science - Technology - Engineering - Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.  This is the first in a series of planned events spanning Atlantic Canada.

Girls will arrive on campus on Saturday, May 12 and leave Sunday, May 13. They will stay in residence and eat in meal halls (Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast). Girls will attend five workshop sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday. Workshops will be run by faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students, and will cover a wide range of topics and activities related to the Mathematical Sciences.

Please see the Girl Guides of Canada website for more information.
