Girls save the date!  The Achieve Anything Foundation is launching a new series of hands-on experience events to inspire more women in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence and other STEM fields!

Select females will have the opportunity to see many facets of the Coast Guard at an inaugural experience event.

The event will be held at the Coast Guard’s Sea Island base at YVR International Airport on Saturday, October 14. Activities include tours of base duty stations, an interactive search & rescue exercise, dive demonstration, educational games, firehose challenge, and a ride to sea in the hovercraft.

This hands-on approach has proven very successful for the foundation’s signature event The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too!, held annually during the week of International Women’s Day. Since 2012 the family-friendly, free event has grown from 1,500 to 15,000 participants, with 20,000 expected in 2018.
