Activity topics are subject to change, but we will still provide you with all the materials you need to participate. 

Note: Western Engineering Outreach Just for Girls programs are inclusive of all participants identifying as female.

Girls Club will run for seven Saturdays virtually over Western Engineering Outreach's secure Zoom channel (pending COVID 19 restrictions). This year sessions will run from January 8 to February 26 (with no program on February 19 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.

We would like to make this program as accessible as possible, so if you require financial assistance to email our office, at discover@uwo.ca, for more information.
