Join us for Saturday workshops of tech-focused excitement!

We are hosting introductory workshops using different pieces of tech with a focus on programming, looping in relevant and current applications, and showing the exciting possibilities of the tech industry through digital skills literacy!

 

You do not need any prior knowledge or experience in coding to participate! We will be introducing brand new content for each event tailored to elementary school students. All events are free of cost and include all materials and snacks.

 

*Events held in Surrey will be identical to their Vancouver counterparts. We recommend registering for your nearest location.

 

On the day of the event: If you have any questions or need to contact one of the event organizers, please call Irene 604-822-2858 or Gagan at 778-552-0401.

 


FAQ

The closest parkade to both the Hennings building is the North Parkade. It is located at 6115 Student Union Boulevard. Further details and fees are listed on UBC Parking’s website.

We will be starting check-in 15 minutes prior to the start time of the event.

Lunch will not be provided for half-day events. For select full-day high school events, lunch may be provided and will be indicated above.

Don’t be discouraged! We often open up a couple of seats a few days before our events due to cancellations. We encourage you to still sign up!

Of course! We encourage participants to also bring their friends along for the fun! Each monthly session will have different curriculum material with little overlap in hopes of providing an introduction to a variety of tech! Note that events held in Surrey will be identical to their Vancouver counterparts. We recommend registering for your nearest location.
