Welcome to the 14th Filipina Leadership Global Summit and to beautiful Toronto, Canada!

PINAY POWER 2017 is finally here.  FWN envisioned the Pinay Power campaign - a dream with a meaningful purpose—to double the number of Filipina women leaders by 2020. The Filipina Leadership Global Summit is exclusively designed for the Global FWN100™ Awardees—Filipina women leaders creating change in the world of Filipinas in diaspora.

PRE-SUMMIT WORKSHOP #2: concurrent):
Musical Coding: Turn Up for STEAM by Music Notes (separate registration)
Program is designed to introduce Tween students to STEAM - Science, Math, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. 

8 hour session
Target audience: 9-12 years old Fil-Canadian girls (Tweens) 

Turn Up for STEAM
Program is designed to introduce Tween students will include a workshop of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Art, Math (STEAM) introduction to learn about STEM careers (or disciplines) and computer programming.  

One of a kind STEAM Workshop called Turn Up for STEAM empowers youth with culturally relevant examples where STEM seamlessly integrate; for instance, Hip-Hop, music, science, and math. Our Digital Design component of this program introduces youth to music composition as we walk the youth through the creation process where they are given the tools for transforming their ideas into reality. 

The program will involve youths ages 9-12 to participate in an idea creation and introduction to critical thinking and programming. Our STEAM interventions integrate the collective principles applied in STEM with a focus on computer science and technology as its cornerstone for expressing science, math, and engineering or information technology processes.

The workshop will include the following topics:

  • Bridging Algebra to Hip-Hop mini-concert and hands-on interactive activities
  • Mini-Coding Hackathon where the students will be introduced to computer science principles using a digital design tool; music composition for learning the Python programming language using the EarSketch Platform. 

Intended Outcomes

When it comes to helping our youth to achieve in school and beyond, exposure, situating tools in the culture (i.e., making skills relevant to the real-world), and motivation is crucial. Youth are more likely to engage with programs that they perceive as having clear value, provide earning potential, or advance them toward personal goals. Such learning experiences can boost outcomes for all children by providing personally meaningful and tangible pathways to advance their knowledge and skills.

  • Introduce students to STEM disciplines and careers for the purpose of broadening participation. Our use of culturally relevant tools, particularly Hip-Hop, situates STEM learning, such as math and science, in a way where the student can conceptualize the content. 
  • This provides a two-prong benefit, in that students learn with ease the core subject (reading, math, science) concepts and gain reinforcement of this learning through the use of computing and digital design.
