An amazing opportunity for all Terry Fox students who are interested in exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM). On Nov. 26th, Millennium is hosting a day long conference, ‘TechCon’, at Launch Academy to bring the world of STEM to BC students!
Millennium is a youth-led not-for-profit organization that has chapters in British Columbia, Ontario, and Alberta. Our goal is to empower youth, especially girls, to develop strong skills in technology, and equip them technological skills to be successful in their future careers. Through TechCon, Millennium will work to improve gender discrepancies in technology related fields by inspiring women about their potential through our inaugural conference.
TechCon 2016 will feature 2 distinguished keynotes, who are both industry professionals passionate about sharing their experiences in the field. We also have a speaker series where we invite experts to share their knowledge in cyber security, software testing, and game design. Our workshops consist of virtual reality, robotics, and a choice of either beginner or intermediate coding. The lunchtime Exhibition Period will involve a collaboration of several different outreach programs geared toward high school students and science fair projects which can serve as a networking session.
