The Philadelphia Section of the Society of Women Engineers and Widener University are co-sponsoring a one-day Engineering Camp for girls in grades 9 – 12. The camp, to be held Saturday, February 6, 2016, on Widener University’s Chester campus, will bring girls who have an interest and/or ability in science/math/technology together with practicing women engineers and female engineering students. The camp is designed as a series of “hands-on” laboratory activities that will highlight some of the technology areas in which engineers work. Funded by corporate donations, the camp is offered free of cost. Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 150 girls, on a first-come basis and the camp usually fills up in early January.
An additional feature of this camp is an optional program for parents entitled “Sending Your Daughter to Engineering School.” The program will include information on university admissions policies, financial aid, and student life, as well as on what parents should expect if their daughter majors in engineering in college. Please make it clear to your female students that they can come for the girls’ camp without their parents coming for the Parents’ Program.
Additional information and on-line registration are available atwww.widener.edu/engineering/girlscamp .
