Engineering Explorations

Engineering Explorations events are an exciting opportunity for girls across BC to visit UBC Engineering and learn about engineering. You will enjoy fun, hands-on activities led by current university students and meet engspiring mentors.

Parents are welcomed to a parent information session later in the day. Learn why engineering is an amazing career opportunity for your daughter and how to encourage her to consider all of her options as she moves forward in her secondary and post-secondary education.

* If you have a boy that is interested in similar programming, we highly encourage you to explore Geering Up and UBC Engineering events. As well, please be aware that we have an inclusive view of the word “girl” and we welcome trans*, genderqueer and non-binary folks interested in these workshops.
