Try/CATCH (Computing and Technology Conference for Her) is an exciting outreach project organized by the Women in Computing Science (WICS) and Women in Engineering Group (WEG) at Simon Fraser University.

Try/CATCH 2016 is a one-day event on May 28th for high school girls from grades eight to twelve, with a major objective of helping girls develop an interest in computing science, engineering science and the field of technology. Throughout the event, students participate in a variety of enriching activities focusing on developing skills in areas such as programming, robotics and other computing-related aspects. Networking is encouraged and the advantages of working in a technology field are highlighted through discussion with women mentors.
