GLOWS strives to increase gender diversity in the field of engineering.
LGBTQ friendly. There is a place for everyone in engineering.
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. We are offering a series of three hands-on workshops that participants will rotate through as well as a panel discussion featuring working professionals, Selkirk College alumni and a current Engineering student.
