Operation Minerva Planning Guide for Educators
The “Operation Minerva Planning Guide for Educators” has been prepared to assist educators in planning and hosting Science, Technology, Math and Science (STEM) mentorship programs for grade 8 girls. The guide is a starting point to be adapted and molded to fit each group’s needs. Alberta specific information and links are provided from 2021, though the overall program is easily adapted to bring benefit to students from any geographic area. The strategies and information can also be used to expose any under-represented segment of junior high students to STEM opportunities through exposure to mentors with similar life experiences to the students.
