Let’s Talk Tech!

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

Each co-ed workshop shows the exciting possibilities of the tech industry through digital skills literacy! We focus on a different pieces of emerging technologies by incorporating programming activities, links to real-life applications, and hands-on experiential learning.

You do not need any prior knowledge or experience in coding to participate! All activities are unique from previous Let’s Talk Tech events. All of these events are free of cost.

Co-hosted with UBC Engineering.

FAQs

UBC Parking: The closest parkade to the Hennings building is the North Parkade. It is located at 6115 Student Union Boulevard. Further details and fees are listed on UBC Parking’s website.

Oh no! There’s a waitlist?: Don’t be discouraged! We often open up a couple of seats a few days before our events due to cancellations. We encourage you to still sign up your child!

Can I register for more than 1 session?: Of course! We encourage participants to also bring their friends along for the fun! All sessions have different curriculum material with little overlap in hopes of providing an introduction to a variety of tech!
