WAITLIST of Virtual Go ENG Girl- Fall 2021


Go ENG Girl is an exciting free virtual event hosted this year on Zoom for female identifying students in Grades 7 to 10. Go ENG Girl will have a Keynote Speaker, the opportunity for mentorship in a Q&A Panel Session with female-identifying undergraduate engineering students, and a hands-on project that introduces concepts of smart systems and sustainable engineering. The event is designed to ensure that no previous knowledge of coding is required and the fundamentals will be taught to ensure that all levels of coders will be supported through the workshop.

 New this year - all registered participants will be mailed an Event Kit which includes all of the required materials to complete the project. This Kit features a piece of technology that encourages further STEM exploration and lifelong learning! Please only register if you are able to attend the event as space is limited and we want to ensure there are opportunities available for all interested participants.

 Please note: Chromebooks are not supported for completion of this project, and it is recommended that all students use a laptop/computer rather than a tablet as USB connection is required. There will be a Tech Support Session hosted on Zoom prior to the event to ensure all participants have the required downloads, details to come!
