Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
During Engineers Week a concerned effort is made to reach out to school age girls and make them aware of the educational fields that could lead them on the path to engineering careers.
Women are severely underrepresented in the engineering profession. Research shows that girls and young women lose interest in subjects and the fields of study leading to engineering careers long before they enter college.*
