ITS for Girls is a monthly club offered by SuperNOVA for girls from grades 4-9. At each session we learn about emerging science and technology by doing hands-on activities with female mentors, either at Dalhousie campus, or visiting a Mentor's place of work. This program allows girls to make friends, learn about career possibilities, and to have fun in an inclusive environment. Check this page monthly to find out who our mentor will be!

There are two sections of the ITS for GIRLS! club:

  • Junior: Grades 4 - 6
  • Senior: Grades 7 - 9

The club meets one Saturday each month from September - June. The cost for this program is just $100 for the full school-year. Meeting usually take place in the morning one Saturday each month, however dates and time are subject to change depending on Mentor availability.
