Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IAGTE) is a day established to help young girls (Grades 6 - 9) understand the opportunities available in the field of engineering. SWE-HA is holding its annual IAGTE event on Saturday, February 18th from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. This is a free event and will be held in person on the campus of the University of Houston - Main Campus. Snacks and lunch will be provided.Join Alief STEM, SWE Houston, SWE Rice and the OEDK to bring the world of engineering to young girls in the Houston area at the "Introduce a Girl to Engineering: Design Your World" event.
There will be two tracks for the event as well as a parent/educator program. This year 200 students will attend one of two outreach program tracks, Innovative Product Design or Extreme Engineering. Innovative product design will include using Autodesk TinkerCAD, laser cutters, and electrical wiring to create lamps to take home! Extreme engineering will be filled with quick thinking, problem solving, procurement, catapult competitions and lava lamps. The Parent/Education Program (PEP) will highlight innovative education tactics to teach girls STEM and keep them engaged.
