All Together, the blog of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), has been doing a series of blog posts called "Day in the Life of an Engineer." These posts describe what life is like for all kinds of women in engineering and technology including students, professionals, and academics. Check out some of our Day in the Life blog posts below, and let us know if you would like to submit a post.
Another great resource is our SWENext #BeThatEngineer poster. It features an infographic with 22 types of engineers explaining what they do, how they contribute to the world, and even how much money they make.

About Invent it. Build it.
Invent it. Build it. is an experience designed to encourage middle school and high school girls to choose a career in engineering. Students participate in a hands-on engineering experience with members of the Society of Women Engineers.
While the girls are having fun building and inventing, parents and educators learn about engineering careers, scholarships, college admission and resources. All attendees learn about engineering clubs, camps, after-school programs and competitions at the Invent it. Build it. EXPO. Learn more about Invent it. Build it. and register for our next event in Minneapolis in October.
