GLOWS strives to increase gender diversity in the field of engineering. There is a place for everyone in engineering. LGBTQ friendly.
From Computers to Aerospace to Civil Engineering, the careers in this field are varied and vast. But women are still underrepresented. GLOWS wants to give all genders an equal chance at thriving in this rewarding career path.
Join Selkirk College and GLOWS for a full day of engineering for youth Grades 6 to 9. Instructors will guide small groups of students in three hands-on workshops that use civil engineering, structural engineering and design and re-design concepts.
Experts from the industry including working professionals, Selkirk College instructors and alumnae will be available throughout the day for engaging conversation about engineering.
