GO ENG GIRL

SFU’s Faculty of Applied Science is hosting a female-focused outreach workshop, called GO ENG GIRL, which encourages girls from Grades 7 to 10 to explore the realm of engineering and hopefully make a difference in the gender imbalances within the STEM world.

This free event includes two fun-filled activities which will allow girls to work hands-on with engineering related projects, alongside SFU’s very own Women in Engineering student group.

GO ENG GIRL will be held in the new SE3P SFU building in Surrey on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Students can register here or email sfu_outreach@sfu.ca for more information.

Girls interested in engineering are invited to have lunch (11:00-12:00) with us! A panel of women engineers and engineering students will share their experience, followed by a chance to network with current engineering students.

Indigenous students and their parents and caregivers are invited to join our current UBC Engineering Indigenous students who will share their own experiences while guiding students through everything that the UBC Engineering & Architecture Open House has to offer.
