Parent Information for November 4 Triad Tech Savvy


Triad Tech Savvy for Ninth Grade Girls will be held Saturday November 4, 2017 with check in starting at 8:30 a.m. in the Syngenta Lobby of Sullivan Science. We are pleased that the opening plenary session is included with the 13th annual Math/Statistics Conference for college students and upper high school students. That is reflected in the tentative schedule below. The ninth graders’ program will begin immediately following the opening speaker and will be held in Petty Science. Lunch is provided in the UNCG dining hall.

Registration is required. If you are registered and for any reason you need to cancel your registration, please send an email by November 1st to with the subject line “TTS cancellation”

If you have attended Tech Savvy events in the past, please be aware that while we welcome parents/guardians to arrive with the girls, there is not a parent program for this Tech Savvy event day. Space is limited to registered attendees.

Parents/Guardians will pick up in the same drop off location at the corner of McIver and Carr Streets. Volunteer escorts and campus security will assist girls to and from the drop off and pick up location, which will be marked.
