Go ENG Girl

Go ENG Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls in grades 7-10 across Ontario and a parent/guardian to visit their local university campus and learn from women professionals, academics and students about the wonderful world of engineering.

While the girls enjoy fun hands-on activities and student exhibits, their parents are treated to an informative session about the path to a career in engineering. Join us for the 10th annual Go ENG Girl location near you.

Go ENG Girl is a popular free event and many of the locations will reach capacity prior to the big day. Reserve your spot by registering in advance! Both the girls and their parent/guardian are included in one single registration form, no need to submit a second form for the parent! Registration is now open!

Oct. 18th or 25th at various University/College locations.

Registration opens August 31, 2014 and fills early.
