Celebrate National Engineers Week February 20 – 26, 2011

Activity: Aspire SWE K-12 Outreach
Engineering is innovation . . . it’s invention . . . it’s one of the most exciting and essential fields there is. In order to help engineering thrive and remain diverse, we need to share the excitement with girls in grades K-12. Education and awareness must start now, well before college. The future is in our hands. Help us place it in theirs.  The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) strives to diversify the field of engineering by encouraging girls in grades K-12 to capture the spirit of innovation and open their eyes and minds to a rewarding multi-faceted profession.
