International Women's Day: Meet Dr. Gina Cherkowski
Wednesday, March 7, 2018
This week, in honour of International Women’s Day on March 8, we are shouting out a handful of the many amazing women working in our local innovation ecosystem. These women are driving change in their fields and we are inspired by their stories.
Meet Dr. Gina Cherkowski, Founder, STEM Learning Lab
Offering youth programming and professional development for educators, STEM Learning Lab promotes student engagement in the STEM fields. STEM Learning Lab operates under the belief that it is critically important for kids to explore, create and play in order to learn about the world around them. Dr. Cherkowski understands that children learn best when they are engaged in fun, challenge-based, hands-on learning experiences linking school curriculum to the real world in tangible and meaningful ways. STEM Learning Lab offers before and after school programming as well as summer camps.
