Alberta Girls Engineering & Technology Summit (AGENTS) - Edmonton

Imagine having the chance to visit a university engineering campus, one of Canada's top startups, and the best game development company in the world.

Imagine getting the chance to ask women engineers, developers, and designers any question about their jobs.

Imagine getting a chance to work with those women and girls just like you on engineering and tech challenges.

AGENTS is all this and more.

You should go.

This incredible event is the first of its kind, inviting promising young women like YOU, from both rural and urban Alberta communities, to participate in a weekend of top-tier engineering and computer science events, from February 23rd-25th, 2018. You'll have an opportunity to attend events across Edmonton including the University of Alberta Engineering campus, Jobber, and the home of our title sponsor: BioWare! You'll participate in engineering, and computer programming challenges, industry panels, and a once-in-a-lifetime brunch with some of the best and brightest women in the Canadian STEM community. This Summit has the potential to be a gamechanger in your life.

Attend one, two, or all three days of the summit. We want as many girls as possible to come, from anywhere across Alberta, but we know that a long drive might make it hard to come forthe whole weekend.

Who is this for?
Young women in grades 10, 11 or 12 with an interest in engineering, physics, math, or computers. Bonus if you're into art, too!. 

Participants must be an Alberta resident currently enrolled in grades 10, 11 or 12.
