Go ENG Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls in grades 7-10 and one parent/guardian to visit their local university campus and learn from women professionals, academics and students about the wonderful world of engineering.
This event is free of cost, and is an opportunity for both Parents and Girls, to learn what engineering is all about and the possibilities that open for the girls, when they choose engineering.
While the girls enjoy fun hands-on activities and student exhibits, their parents are treated to an informative session about the path to a career in engineering.
Why is this necessary?
Even today, females remain vastly underrepresented in the engineering profession. While the number of female undergraduates studying engineering in accredited programs has increased in recent years, the percentage is still far below that of males. ONWiE works to dispel stereotypes and encourage young girls to explore this exciting and diverse profession with real-life examples of females who are studying engineering and alumna who are excelling as professional engineers.
