Q: How do I enter to win this STEM-tastic calculator?
A: Share a photo of you and ANYTHING that represents SWENext and SHARE that photo in our Facebook Group. Use hashtag #SWENextSelfie in your posts!
Q: What exactly makes a #SWENextSelfie?
A: It could be a selfie of yourself, a “selfie” of a STEM-related project you’re working on, a selfie of you and your SWENext friends … let your creativity fly! Here are some examples to get the inspiration going!
SWENext is a way to become part of the Society of Women Engineers as a student through the age of 18. Become part of SWE and #BeThatEngineer! Joining is free. Families and educators play a key role in the success of SWENexters. The SWENext program offers resources and information for adult advocates as well.
SWE launched the program after receiving hundreds of requests from parents seeking resources on how to educate their daughters about the transformational impact of engineering. For students, SWENext provides a dynamic opportunity to learn, connect with peers and witness real women engineers in action. SWENext participants can also meet women role models, which is a critical step toward enabling them to visualize themselves in a STEM career.
“SWENext will introduce the next generation of women to the exciting world of engineering in a collaborative, fun environment,” says SWE executive director and CEO, Karen Horting. “We want to provide girls with a network of mentors and girls like themselves who will support them throughout their journey.”
When participants (including girls, parents, guardians and educators) sign up for SWENext, they will receive complimentary access to:
- Up-to-date information about outreach events such as camps, competitions and workshops hosted by SWE and its partners
- A catalog of available scholarships for engineering schools offered by SWE and partner organizations
- Tips and best practices for applying for scholarships and internships
- Advice from practicing engineers as they discuss the work they do in regular webinars
- Opportunities to shape the future of the program through participation in the SWENext council
