Saint Mary’s University and Techsploration Science Award 2012 Recipient: Paige Power
Welcome to Techsploration! We are excited that you are involved, or interested in becoming involved, and we are confident that your experience will be one of the most fun, rewarding and inspiring times of your life (so far!).
You’ll learn about amazing careers in fields you may never have heard of. You’ll meet encouraging and supportive role models who are:
- Flying airplanes or fixing them
- Studying or sailing the world’s oceans
- Engineers and radio technicians
- Video journalists and firefighters
- Welders, crane operators and computer scientists.
The careers you’ll discover and the dynamic role models you’ll meet will open doors that change your life. You can be whatever you desire—a world of opportunities is out there, just waiting.
If you have already participated in Techsploration, there is a special section of this website just for you. See our Alumnae page.
How to Become Involved
There are 21 schools currently participating in Techsploration. If your school is listed and you would like to become involved, please talk to your Techsploration Team Teacher.
If your school isn’t currently involved in Techsploration, please ask your Guidance Counsellor to contact Techsploration.
In the future, we will be offering online workshops and information, such as discovering the steps to becoming an apprentice in a trade or virtually meeting and hearing presentations from dynamic role models succeeding at in-demand careers. We are looking for your feedback about types of information in which you would be interested.
Parents & Guardians
We wish to thank the parents or guardians of Techsploration team members for allowing us the opportunity to enhance the career guidance they are already providing their daughters. Parents or guardians are always welcome at Techsploration events. Please contact us with any questions and to find out how you can participate.
“Techsploration was one of the best things I’ve ever participated in. It is a wonderful opportunity for young women to explore their career options early so they have an idea of what they would like to do… (expand quote)-Rebecca Deagle, Guysborough Academy Techsplorer
