Join us for half-day 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 Anique at 403-915-5484 or Gagan at 778-552-0401.

Parent Programming

Concurrently with our youth programming, we are hosting parent discussions and sessions around engaging youth with STEM! These sessions will start 1 hour before the end of each Let’s Talk Tech event. We will have light refreshments available. If you are interested, please RSVP when registering your child in the event. Looking forward to seeing you there!


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!

Yes! With each Vancouver event, there will be a parent session. At this time, we will not be hosting parent sessions in Surrey.

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.
