Register now to meet with technology leaders and learn about careers in tech
March 31, 2017 from 8:30-2:30 at Weber State University
SheTech Explorer Day is a hands-on tech conference for high school girls 9th through 12th grade. This free 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. Girls who attend will have access to internerships, receive a SheTech certificate, receive pathway information and become part of a community to help girls have opportunities in STEM.
What will I do during the day?
Your day will be very interactive and allow you to touch and feel a lot of really cool things. You’ll start in the morning with some sessions where you can explore things such as robotics, computer programming, digital media, health and microbiology. You'll then listen to a keynote speech from a woman business leader while enjoying a catered lunch. In the afternoon we have a SheTech Challenge where you will be in teams for a design activity. Finally, awards and giveaways will round out your day.
Over 250 internships are available to students who participate in the SheTech program. All girls who complete the SheTech program will have the ability to submit for interships through our industry partners. Internships with open the end of March.
The SheTech platform includes providing a list to STEM scholarships opportunities for girls.
High School Curriculum
The platform also includes pathways planning. Once the girls get exposure to tech and determine their interests we will work them to understand what classes to take and preparation they can do to head in to a career in STEM.
All girls that complete the Workshops, TechZone and TechChallenge will receive a certificate. In addition, Certiport is offering girls who come through the SheTech program the opportunity to complete an industry certification.
