SFU summer AI program for young women aims to close STEM gap

March 13, 2018

SFU is helping close the STEM gender gap through Invent the Future, a trailblazing summer enrichment program to help increase the number of Canadian girls considering careers in computer science (CS) and artificial intelligence (AI).

STEM is an acronym representing science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Twenty-four female Grade 11 students from across Canada will be immersed in life as an AI researcher on SFU’s Burnaby campus from July 8-20, 2018.

Registration for this program is now open and the application deadline is April 3. Young women from rural areas who may have less access to STEM programs will be given priority.
