The Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) and the University of New Brunswick hosted a Girl Guides weekend camp encouraging girls to pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematic disciplines. 

On May 12 and 13, more than 500 girls between the ages of nine and 18, who are members of the Girl Guides organization from New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, took part in the camp. 

Starting on Saturday morning, the girls participated in six 45-minute workshops, one in each of the STEM disciplines, to expose them to different aspects of the field. Workshops were run by UNB faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, and covered a wide range of topics and activities related to the mathematical sciences.
