SET Conference

What is the SET Conference?

The SET (Science, Engineering and Technology) Conference is a fun day that will show grades 10-12 high school girls that there is more to science than medicine and more to engineering than bridge building.

This full-day conference (with lunch included) gives students the opportunity to...

  • See what University is really like
  • Explore diverse careers in science, engineering and technology
  • Learn about work-life balance in SET careers
  • Discover how SET careers can make the world a better place
  • Experience a real lab environment through hands-on lab activities
  • Meet University students and talk with women in SET careers
  • Learn about different faculties and departments at the U of A at our Info Fair (parents are invited to this portion of the event)
