The goal of Techsploration is to increase the number of women working in science, engineering, trades, and technology-related occupations by assisting young women from diverse backgrounds to explore a wide range of career options in fields where women are significantly underrepresented. Our programming for young women in Grades 9 through 12 creates awareness about the role of work in their lives and helps them understand the significance of math and science for their future careers. Does the program work? Nearly 50% of our alumnae pursue careers in one of our four areas of focus!
Techsploration is a recipient of a 2017 NOW! Nova Scotia Good News Award and was recognized nationally with the 2018 Women in Communications and Technology Leadership Excellence Award for Empowerment.
