Are you a grade 12 girl who is curious about engineering? Want to see what university is like? Come to the University of British Columbia for our inaugural grade 12 girls conference in November!
The conference is an exciting opportunity for grade 12 girls to participate in hands-on workshops, explore the University of British Columbia, meet engineering students and compete in a design competition!
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.
