Day Camp at Tanjong Katong Girls’ School

On 14th May, Girls2Pioneers conducted a day camp with 180 Secondary 2 students from Tanjong Katong Girls School. The day camp began with a talk by Emily Tabak, a Business Development and Planning Manager from Hewlett-Packard Helion. During the talk, she was able to share her experiences working as a Woman in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), address the stereotype that girls cannot do STEM as careers, and share how the students could become more interested and involved in STEM.

During the day camp, TKGS girls learnt more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through fun and interactive activities that are related to STEM, and encouraged the students to creatively solve problems using everyday objects. They built aqueducts that transported water, dug up the remains of an alien to construct an alien body, worked on a number grid for cyber-security, and designed a drone that could transport money to customers. The Girls2Pioneers day camp also gave them the opportunity to interact with women working in Google, who not only facilitated the activities, but also shared their experiences working in Google.
