On November 18, 2023, 13 students of the Pink Titans participated in the Girls & Allies Youth Summit at Centennial College - Progress Campus. The day began at the Centennial College Event Centre with the students listening to a panel of female FIRST alumni who shared their experiences, wisdom, and advice to the younger students. The students then participated in activities that fostered collaboration, creative thinking, and leadership skills. General Motors Canada engaged students to think like entrepreneurs and inventors in designing new vehicles for future customers. The FIRST Canada's Youth Council led activities about constructing friendship bracelets and the tallest tower with the resources provided.
In the afternoon, students participated in two of many available workshops at the Centennial College's School of Engineering and Applies Science Information and Communication Engineering Technology. The Pink Titans participated in workshops exploring topics in coding, architectural technology, virtual reality, manufacturing design.
Thanks very much to the staff and students at Centennial College for their hospitality, supportive staff, and delicious food. Thanks very much staff at FIRST Robotics Canada for providing the opportunity to build leadership skills and make new friendships!
