Hybrid sessions

We continue to run our Technovation Girls Toronto chapter in a hybrid format this season. We will hold weekly sessions virtually to go over curriculum content. We'll host biweely sessions on the Toronto Metropolitan University campus (formerly Ryerson) to allow our GTA teams to work together in person.

The virtual sessions will run on Wednesday evenings, 6-7:30 pm. The in-person sessions will run biweekly on Saturdays, 1-3 pm. 

To ensure cyber safety, we provide workshop details and links only to students and mentors who have registered with our chapter.

We will be following the Technovation Girls curriculum (external link) .
