Cybermentor helps reinforce what girls learn in the classroom about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Girls in grades 6 to 12 across Alberta are matched with a woman working in science or engineering—a mentor who helps further motivate students to excel in science and math at school, and explore a myriad of careers in the STEM fields. Personal role models are crucial to keeping girls engaged in science during the critical middle school years. Mentors can also help students to research and apply for university programs, find meaningful summer jobs, and provide reference letters.
