Patricia Walker, member of the Society of Women Engineers and engineering manager at Medtronic, promoted WE18 and SWE's outreach event Invent it. Build it. on TV in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Check out her segment below.
SWE, Girl Scouts, WGBH's Design Squad Global, Techbridge, and the ExxonMobil Foundation have teamed up for the 9th annual Invent it. Build it. It's a one-day engineering experience for middle school and high school girls with a parallel program for parents and educators. In the morning, girls attend our Outreach Expo, and in the afternoon, they do a hands-on engineering activity with women engineers.
Outreach EXPO serves girls, families, educators and SWE members. Exhibitors offer demonstrations and interactive displays. They share information about careers, engineering clubs, camps, after-school programs, competitions, best practices and outreach grants.
College Row is a new part of Invent it. Build it. this year. Girls, parents, and educators can walk down College Row and meet representatives from colleges and universities with engineering degree programs, STEM summer programs, scholarship opportunities and more.
