Attention NMS Girls!!

​Dear Parents,

UNB is hosting an exciting day on October 14.  It is called Go Eng Girl and is meant to educate girls and their parents about engineering.  We will be doing an activity with the girls while the parents attend an info session and then will be doing an activity with the girls and the parents together.  
 
I was hoping you would be able to share this link with your students and/or parents.  We are limiting registrations to 25 girls this year as it is our first year with the event.
 
 
Thanks in advance for your help!
