Explorer Day at Southern Utah University

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Join thousands of other high school girls in a day of exploring and technology!

SheTech Explorer Day is a conference for high school girls 9th through 12th grade. This day-long event will include hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  Our ultimate goal is to expose girls to technology in a fun atmosphere as well as meet STEM role models to learn more about opportunities in those fields.

What will I do during the day?

The day is interactive, girls get to experience hands-on technology from solar, to app building, to rocketships, to hacking to 3D printing.  The morning starts with workshops including robotics, computer programming, digital media, health and microbiology.  You'll then listen to an industry keynote speaker from a women in technology.  And in the afternoon the girls compete in the TechChallenge design activity. And finally, awards and giveaways round out the day.
