UBC Applied Science Open House
(www.engineering.ubc.ca/openhouse or www.apsc.ubc.ca/openhouse)
Applied Scientists Save the World – come and find out how. Join us, Saturday, November 26, 2016 from 10am to 4pm. Open to all high school students – especially those interested in mathematics and science.
Engineers, nurses and architects help prevent disease, reduce poverty and create solutions to protect people and our planet.
There will be cool demonstrations, fascinating lab tours, and informative presentations. Talk to academic advisors, professors and current students about all your options. Learn how engineering can make a world of difference. Bring your friends and family to explore – we suggest you plan to attend the whole day, as there are activities happening throughout the day.
The School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture will also be hosting afternoon events, and we will be joined by the School of Nursing at our Academic Booth Fair. Engineering departments and programs will have presentations, lab tours, demos, presentations – as they do every year.
In addition to all the exciting options, we’d also like to invite Grade 10-12 girls to attend an informative lunch:
Eng*Cite Lunch for Grade 10-12 Girls at the Open House
Grade 10-12 girls interested in science and math are invited to attend the eng•cite Lunch for an opportunity to talk to and hear presentations by women who are currently studying engineering or young alumnae who are working in the industry. We would like to provide an open forum to enable discussions with and questions to other female students/engineers who were facing a similar decision more recently, and why they chose their path. Interested students must RSVP for the lunch by November 21st.
For more information and to RSVP, please visit our website: www.engineering.ubc.ca/openhouse or www.apsc.ubc.ca/openhouse.
We look forward to seeing you at our Open House!
