SFU’s new Victory Square Girls Tech Camp, running this July at two Surrey elementary schools, gives Grades six and seven girls hands-on workshops in fundamental computer programming and engineering skills.

And to help grow the camp in future years, Shafin Diamond Tejani, CEO and founder of Victory Square Technologies, has just established a $75,000 matching fund to match donations from other individuals.

"I am so proud and honoured to be able to assist SFU and Surrey Schools with this important initiative," says Tejani.

Together we can champion STEM with girls through creating curiosity, celebrating accomplishments, and giving them the confidence to grow and excel."
