On 10 October 2019, SWE global ambassadors in São Paulo organized an outreach activity hosted by ExxonMobil and Cummins. The event was held at the Alice Chuery school in Guarulhos, Brazil. There were a total of 150 students age 10-12 that joined the “marshmallow challenge”workshop. The activity was designed to expose young people to the common skills needed in the engineering field: strategy, teamwork, construction, working with limited materials, etc. Additionally, the workshop aided in showing women engineers as role models to the students to open their minds about engineering as a possible career for females.

Not only did the students gain knowledge about engineering, but there were 16 volunteers who also gained something valuable at the event. Facilitators enjoyed being able to take time to interact with the students and inspire the future generation of engineering. The ExxonMobil Women’s Interest Network (WIN) supported the event as well by sponsoring pencil cases branded with ExxonMobil to be gifted to the students to commend their attention and participation.
