Access to a computer, tablet or smartphone and a stable internet connection is required to participate Virtually Live.
- Who is eligible to participate?
Registration for Women in Science is open to high school students, university students and members of the general public. People of all genders are welcome.
Some students may find the Women in Science learning format challenging. The curriculum has been designed for a senior high school audience (grades 10-12), we'd recommend anyone younger consider your preferred learning style and comfort level before deciding to register.
- How will you register?
The link to access the registration form will be posted here Monday, January 9, 2023 at 9:00 am to Sunday, January 22, 2023 at 11:59 pm.
To complete the registration form you will be asked to provide the following:

Space for participating In-Person is limited. Participants not selected to attend the event at BC Children's Hospital will be offered the option to participate Virtually Live.
- How do we select who participates?
To maximize in-person engagement, only 150 participants will be select to participate Virtually Live.
To keep things fair and unbiased for all, participants will be selected based on a lottery draw. All eligible participants who register will have an equal chance of attending.
