The School of Engineering was excited to host close to 300 students as a part of Experience UBC, a new event held on campus for high school students interested in UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Attending students first listened as engineering students shared their experiences, including trips abroad, participation in on-campus clubs and societies, engineering research, conference attendance, co-op terms, and daily life.
Then engineering volunteers toured students through various workshops hosted by student clubs and research labs where students could learn more about each opportunity or research topic.
Lunch was provided for attending students, and a Campus Showcase was set up for students to browse through. Clubs, course unions, societies, and campus services were present, and a wide range of information was available for students to take home.
Over 1000 students participated in Experience UBC campus-wide.
