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.

* 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.

How will we create a more sustainable future for the world? Interested in learning how we can use engineering to help move the world towards a sustainable future? Using the engineering design cycle you can ideate new solutions that will directly impact future generations. 

This event will also bring together exciting industry insights from mentors from the UBC Solar Design Team to inspire future environmental engineers as they take you behind the scenes of building a solar car.

This event is offered in cooperation with ONWiE.

One of the best ways to find out what you are passionate about is to try it out for yourself! In this event, you will be able to see a robot you have created come to life in a fun and interactive environment. Robotics Today will feature how to program robots in a virtual VEX Robotics simulator. This event will help you discover the many ways in which robotics can help our world. A panel of experts from the Surrey Robotics Innovation lab will be present to share their expertise and answer questions as we venture through the world of Robotics.

One of the best ways to find out what you're passionate about is to try it out for yourself!  Design our Future features creative and fun ways to help our world from home, using engineering.  Presentations from student groups and UBC Engineering will give you a closer insight into pursuing this field and contributing towards making a difference.

As technology continues to evolve in our daily lives, we are able to leverage new technologies for new applications. Explore the exciting world of Quantum Computing and how it is impacting our everyday lives. Engineering students share ideas and perceptions bringing you closer to this exciting domain.

This event is offered in cooperation with ONWiE.

By combining your creativity and design skills, you can innovate and create unique solutions to existing problems. With a student panel, you will have insights from current engineering students about their technical projects, student life, their journey into UBC Engineering.  Interact with the UBC Sailbot Team to understand the process of design and construction to system integration and testing as they prepare the launch for their latest vessel, Raye, from Victoria to Hawaii in 2021!
