The Faculty of Applied Sciences at Simon Fraser University invites girls (grades 8 – 11) and their parents/guardians to learn more about the wonderful world of computing science. Please join us for this free event where girls will have fun participating in programming activity while parents learn about the possibility of computing science as a career choice for their daughters. The day will conclude with refreshments.
Technovation (January to May 2018)
Open to girls ages 10 to 18. The Technovation Challenge teaches middle and high school girls how to make an app for a mobile phone using AppInventor. This 12-week, online, after-school program is structured so that groups of girls (ages 10-18) learn how to identify a problem, design and test a solution, collaborate with a team and communicate effectively. Each team will work though the Technovation curriculum with assistance from a mentor.
