The girls will work with members of the Society of Women Engineers from around the world on Design Squad activities. Everyone will leave with an understanding of what engineers do and how they make a world of difference.
The adults will have a chance to network, participate in a panel discussion with SWE members, and outreach experts, and do a hands-on activity of their own.
Both groups will have the opportunity to visit exhibitors like FIRST, Girl Scouts, SciGirls, WGBH, SWE, and others at our Invent It. Build It. EXPO. The Invent It. Build It. EXPO will also be open to SWE members and the general public during public EXPO hours from 11am -3pm.
