* 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.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the inaugural event!
Engaging girls in digital skills is more than building a knowledge base in computer science. It’s about creativity, solving problems for the real world, collaboration, and more! Geering Up’s Digital Skills Day for Parents/Caregivers and Girls focuses on building the skillsets and mindsets to understand our increasingly digital world.
We are inviting 40 girls and their parents/caregivers to join us for the full event. There will be collaborative activities between you and your child as well as breakout sessions to engage with other parents and caregivers! Girls breakout sessions will emphasize girl-led content where they will be encouraged to lead their own learning and STEM exploration.
