Founding Program Partners
“I’m an aircraft maintenance apprentice and when I complete my apprenticeship I would like to become a mentor. My experience at Techsploration is the reason I’m excelling in my career and why I would like to influence other girls.”
“The whole experience made me feel part of something bigger than myself. We worked as a team, it was amazing!”
“Anything is possible if you just believe -- Techsploration sponsors make that possible for young women. They open doors some girls may never have thought could be opened. I can honestly say that I’m not sure where my life would be today if I hadn’t participated in this program."
"I love participating in Techsploration because I can see the impact of the program first-hand. I have seen alumnae choose NSCC's Pipe Trades program after experiencing Techsploration -- knowing that you can inspire young women to pursue a career in the trades is so rewarding!"
Techsploration Role Model
“Without a doubt, the most life changing lesson Techsploration taught me was not that trades are for girls, but that trades are for me.”
"I decided to become a Team Teacher because I knew first-hand the benefits of the program. I saw the importance of encouraging females to enter fields that are of interest to them, no matter the usual gender roles."
