Techsplorer Alumnae Conference
This annual one-day event is for young women in grades 10, 11 and 12. It provides Techsploration alumnae and guest students the opportunity to meet more role models working in exciting and challenging science, trades and technology careers and participate in hands-on workshops. Attending this conference is an invaluable way for young women to learn about in-demand careers that may not otherwise occur to them… machinists, video game designers, research scientists, survey technicians, aircraft mechanics, forensic scientists…to name just a few.

“I met some amazing women through Techsploration. I learned about some great jobs and got some really good advice. I talked to one role model who was from ExxonMobil. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I loved cars. This role model suggested that I volunteer at a local garage to get an idea if I’d like to work with cars as a career. I loved it. Today, I’m a mechanic. She really did help me change my life.”–Shelly Pye, Duncan MacMillan High School and Automobile Mechanic
