Girls Club will run for seven Saturdays virtually over Western Engineering Outreach's secure Zoom channel. This year sessions will run January 9 to February 27 (with no program on February 13 due to the Family Day holiday).The cost for the program is $100 and includes all the materials you will need for each of the activities, excluding household items, delivered to your door.  Parents and guardians are welcome to join our online sessions and see what great things their future engineers are up to. Each participant receives a certificate to mark the occasion.
