Savannah Girls Engineer It Day for 6-12th grade students, Sept. 17

Girls Engineer It Day

Engineering is fun. Let Society of Women Engineers in Savannah prove it to you.

All students in grade 6-12 and adults are invited to attend a one-day event focused on teaching hands-on STEM activities and let them decide if Engineering/STEM is a career path they would consider in their future.

Students will go through 3 activities focused on different kinds of engineering taught by local technologists.

The day will start with a STEM Expo which are small activities provided by local companies, surrounding universities & professional organizations. Then students are broken into groups to begin the 3 activities (1 hr a piece).

While the students are learning, there will be a separate event for the adults to learn everything you might need to keep students interested in STEM, college prep, financial aid & even community opportunities for internships.

Adults will learn their own STEM activity that they will be able to take home to teach the students what they learned.

Cost: $5 a student.

The event is limited to 300 students (200 middle and 100 high school). This event sells out every year.
