Workshops for Grade 9-10 Girls

Girls Exploring Physics presents free workshops for girls in Grades 9 and 10 held at the SFU Burnaby campus. These workshops include two hands-on activity sessions in physics. They also include a tour of the new Trottier astronomical observatory and a discussion of the career opportunities available to students who study physics at the university level. Participants will have a chance to interact informally with women physics faculty and students from SFU throughout the workshop and during the free pizza lunch. The schedule of events and location for the next workshop are listed below.

Our next workshop will be in Fall 2019. Registration will open in October 2019. Please contact for more information.

If you are just being dropped off or parking for a short time, the best place to park is the East parking lot on the east side of campus near the Cornerstone Building. From the East lot, you will have to walk west through the Applied Sciences Building,  and then turn left (south) at the Physics building. There will be signs posted if you go this way. Here is a map of the SFU parking lots and directions to the Burnaby campus.
