Engineering a Future

This is a neat opportunity for young women interested in becoming problem solvers and creative thinkers to spend time experiencing the ever-changing and exciting field of engineering. Activities are focused on displaying how engineers turn dreams into reality. Tech engineering professors as well as professional engineers will lead hands-on activities in a relaxed atmosphere. College students will serve as chaperones.
