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.
Many thanks to our sponsors, teachers, role models, and volunteers who help make our Techsplorer Events possible. This year’s Techsplorer Events are being held on the following dates:
|April 11-12, 2019||NSCC Strait Area Campus, Port Hawkesbury|
|May 9-10, 2019||Saint Mary’s University, Halifax|
