"One cool thing about my job is..."
During the two-day Techsplorer Event, young women from across the province gather with their teachers, role models and invited guests to participate in exciting, interactive presentations and workshops. This event reinforces and expands upon the information provided in the Techsploration team presentations and gives each girl the chance to meet the other role models.
All of the young women are actively involved in the team presentations. Along with providing information on their assigned career, the students introduce their role model, who responds to questions from the floor.
For those in the audience, it is an opportunity to witness the power of the program first-hand! Each year we hear about the creativity and confidence shown by these young women.
Important skills that can take decades to acquire are being honed in a supportive and encouraging environment.
This year’s Techsplorer Events were held on the following dates. Teachers, role models, volunteers, sponsors – thank you to everyone who made these events a huge success and for providing this amazing opportunity for the young women of Nova Scotia.
