Engineering and Technology Workshops for Girls

Wow! That’s Engineering!

In order to encourage teen girls in grades 8-10 (but girls slightly outside age range are welcome) across the country to become involved with engineering and technology, the Society of Women Engineers has launched a new program, Wow! That’s Engineering! Volunteers from the Boston chapter of SWE are organizing an afternoon of workshops (Saturday May 2, 2009 from 12:00 PM – 3:30 PM. at the University of Massachusetts Lowell in Lowell, MA ) to show girls the field beyond the stereotypes. They will work on hands-on activities, meet women engineers and engineering students, and hear first-hand about these exciting careers.

The event will be free, but pre-registration is required due to limited space.
