PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND, CANADA 
"WOMEN DO MATH & SCIENCE"

The 1994 PEI Women Do Math & Science Project is bigger than ever!  In its 
fourth successful year, it has grown to a two-phase project.

* Phase I:  Keynote Event on Friday, May 27, 1994, for 2000 grade 8 girls 
            and boys.
* Phase II: Mentoring Project, running from June to September, for 300 
            grade 8 girls.

Phase I takes place at the Charlottetown Civic Centre.  Carol Gold, 
Science Communicator for the Ontario Science Centre, is the Keynote 
Speaker. Her presentation will be followed by a live theatrical performance.

Phase II takes place throughout the summer, and will involve 300 girls 
going on-site for mentoring experiences in math, science, and 
technology-related fields.  Island Mentor Sponsors include:  CBC, Island 
Tel, UPEI, Holland College, Marine Atlantic, the Food Technology Centre 
and Maritime Electric.

The main goal of this project is to ensure that the grade 8 girls of this 
province continue to benefit from consistent and strong community 
support. This support can encourage them to pursue math and science, 
especially as they begin to choose their subjects for junior and senior 
high and, eventually their careers.  Not only will grade 8 girls be 
positively affected by this project, their friends, parents, teachers, 
and communities benefit as well.
