Let’s Talk Tech! – 4 Upcoming Spring Events

Join us for half-day workshops of tech-focused excitement!

We are hosting multiple introductory workshops using one or two particular pieces of tech with a focus on programming, looping in relevant and current applications, and showing the exciting possibilities of the tech industry through digital skills literacy! You do not need any prior knowledge or experience in coding to participate! In a past event, participants created code to run a musical sequence alongside an LED light show on circuit playgrounds. They then learned about 3D printing and tried their hand at creating 3D designs using 3Doodlers.

Curriculum is going to be repeated between events targeted for the same age groups so please only sign up for one event.

Thanks to CanCode, a two-year investment in coding and digital skills development from the Government of Canada, eng•cite and Geering Up will be hosting more events, workshops, and initiatives to inspire youth through innovative, experiential, and hands-on activities.

Co-hosted by eng•cite, Geering Up, and UBC Engineering.
