These events are offered specifically for girls with the goal of increasing the recruitment and retention of women in engineering, science and math. Students will get the opportunity to further explore what it means to be an engineer and get the opportunity to connect with current UBC Engineering students. Interested in any of our other events open to all students? Check out our Events and Visits website for more!

In addition to all the events we have happening as part of our UBC Engineering & SALA Open House, we are also hosting the Women in Engineering Student Panel. All Girls in Grades 10-12 are invited to hear from a panel of current students who share their experiences and answer your questions in a supportive and engaging environment. RSVP to be notified when registration opens.
All-Girls* Events are an exciting opportunity for girls across BC to explore how they can use their creativity to help the world. Girls will learn about engineering design and will enjoy fun, hands-on activities led by current university students and meet inspiring mentors. Connect with other like-minded students and talk to current engineering students and professionals who will share their stories and experience. All events are free of cost. All events in the 2020 – 21 school year will be offered virtually – you will need a device (laptop or desktop computer) at home in order to participate.
