Try/CATCH (Computing and Technology Conference for Her) is an exciting outreach project organized every year by WiCS at Simon Fraser University. Try/CATCH is a two-day event for high school girls in grades eight to twelve, with the objective of helping them develop an interest in STEM/Computing Science and the technology field. Throughout the event, students will participate in a variety of hands-on workshops in programming, UX/UI Design, Entrepreneurship, and Artificial Intelligence. A keynote and panel session will provide students with opportunities to hear from or network with females studying or working in technical fields.
We will also hold an information session for parents to provide them with an opportunity to ask questions they may have about the road into a technology field, and the challenges and the rewards their children may face. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be hosting our Try/Catch 2021 event virtually this year on the weekend of Oct. 2nd-3rd!

Try/CATCH is generously sponsored by the SFU Faculty of Applied Science and Faculty of Computing Science. The event is organized by student members of SFU's Women in Computing Science group.
