Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
Activities and Tours
Women engineering students are invited to join the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology Society of Women Engineers in leading groups of high school girls from area schools through two activity stations. The event will be held in McDonnell Douglas Hall on Thursday, February 23 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is a program designed to raise awareness and interest in engineering careers among women. Currently, only 20 percent of engineering undergraduates are women, and only ten percent of the engineering workforce is a woman. Saint Louis University is dedicated to raising awareness in engineering and inspiring young women to explore this exciting industry.
Industry Luncheon 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
To celebrate women in engineering, Parks will be hosting the 3rd Annual SLU Introduce a Girl to Engineering Luncheon following the morning activities from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. in the Perre Marquette Gallery in DuBourg Hall. Students will have the opportunity to network and learn about the field of engineering from women faculty and professionals.
This year marks the 11th anniversary of Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day on a national level. During this time, women engineers have had the opportunity to inspire over one million young females as they have introduced them to engineering.
