A 2012 study identified the above criteria as the most effective elements in K-12 intervention programs to increase #diversity in science.

EoT’s outreach programs are designed with these key elements in mind!

Be sure to watch the full video below (it’s only 2 minutes!) to hear from Changiz Sadr, P.Eng., FEC, CISSP Advisory Board Member. He’s sharing his personal mentorship experience (one of the key ingredients in K-12 intervention programs!).

And thanks to Dr. Eden Hennessey and Laurier’s Women in Science team for their WinSight article referencing the study!
