The Canadian Association for Girls in Science goes Off Limits at KITE ’s Winter Lab

Off Limits, the latest video series from the Canadian Association for Girls in Science (CAGIS), takes viewers behind the scenes to exciting STEM locations like roller coasters at Wonderland or the Canadian Space Agency’s “Mars Yard”, to explore and meet amazing role models!

In this month’s video, CAGIS Founder and President, Dr. Larissa, visits KITE Research Institute’s Winter Lab where she meets biomedical engineer, Dr. Sophia Li. Together, they brave the treacherous and icy conditions created inside the lab to test and rate winter boots. You can watch the video by visiting their website.

The video is being released alongside a fun, hands-on STEM Challenge for girls, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming youth! What’s the Challenge? Participants need to keep a popsicle person safe on a block of ice by testing different materials to find the one with the best grip! 

Two STEM Challenge winners will be selected: one aged 7 to 11, one aged 12 to 16. The winners will each receive a $60 prize pack generously donated by the Telus World of Science Edmonton!
