The Youth Outreach Committee plays a crucial role in helping to achieve UBC Engineering’s goal of 50% female enrollment by the year 2020. They work to increase the representation of women in engineering at UBC by delivering presentation and workshops to elementary and secondary school students across the Lower Mainland. Through these presentations, students are exposed to the opportunities engineering has to offer and the impact engineering has on the world around them. They work closely with Geering Up and eng•cite to encourage young female students to consider engineering as a career.
