Try/CATCH Conference

Posted on 09/23/2021


Try/CATCH (Computing and Technology Conference for Her) is an annual event organized specifically for high school girls from grades 8-12, with the objective of fostering curiosity about computing science.
 

We will be featuring 5 different workshops (UI/UX, intermediate/beginner programming, AI, Entrepreneurship), panelists, and an alumni keynote speaker who is now currently now a fulltime employee at Google. This is a FREE virtual two-day event which will be held over the October 2-3rd weekend, and is open to all female high school students across Canada. We will also be featuring a parent-info session at the end of the event to give you more insight as to what SFU has to offer in terms of student life and education. This is a great opportunity to expose young girls to this field of technology and meet others and network with industry professionals.
