Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) is an international event celebrated during Engineers Week each year.
Students and their parents or educators are invited to UT for an afternoon of engineering fun. UT’s national award winning Girl Day, presented by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP), gives over 2,000 first through eighth grade students a chance to:
- have fun doing grade-specific, hands-on engineering activities,
- meet students, professors and engineers from industry, and
- see what it's like to be an engineer.
Afternoon of Saturday, February 27, 2016
A special thanks to all WEP Girl Day Partners including local community organizations and not-for-profits, engineering student organizations, companies, and area colleges and universities. For more information on how to join WEP in this effort, contact Tricia Berry at email@example.com or 512-471-5650.
Registration for Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day 2016 will open in mid-December. You can sign up for our eNewsletter to get a notification when registration is open.
Volunteer registration will open in early 2016. Onsite volunteer registration will happen on campus in activity buildings or in Bridgeway. Volunteers lead hands-on engineering activities (training provided by WEP), answer questions for all our guests, set-up and clean-up, and more.
