Our SWENext comic book is called Constance & Nano: Engineering Adventure #1. It was introduced at SWE’s last annual conference in Philadelphia as an outreach tool to encourage girls to consider a career in engineering and technology.
Curious high school student Constance noticed that every time it rains, the streets flood and traffic gets dangerous! With the help of her teacher and a very special hi-tech superhero, Constance learns how to save the day! Plus: Learn about the Society of Women Engineers and start your very own chapter of SWENext at your school!
