Girls Engineering Exploration returns as virtual sessions

The Society of Women Engineers Detroit Section is excited to announce they will be continuing their virtual STEM sessions this spring.  

The group unfortunately had to cancel last year’s Girls’ Engineering Exploration annual event scheduled for March at the Michigan Science Center.  The group has created a virtual engineering series as an alternate way to bring the programming to families. 

There will be six virtual sessions, each 1 1/2 hours starting at 11 a.m., offered this spring on a variety of engineering topics. Access to an internet connected computer/device and ability to join a virtual audio and video platform will be needed. These sessions will be interactive and most will require additional hands on materials. Materials needed will be common household items and/or SWE Detroit will get you the materials before the session so all can participate. The dates & topics can be found below. 

  • 4/24: Earth Day (Sustainable Engineering) (registration closes 4/17)
  • 5/1: Chemical Engineering
  • 5/8: Automotive Engineering
  • 5/15: Materials Engineering
  • 5/22: Industrial Engineering
  • 5/29: Electrical & Computer Engineering

Register at this link for any/all sessions your child is interested in.  If you are a returning participant from the fall virtual sessions, these will be completely new topics and activities.

SWE will also be hosting an informational parent and teacher virtual session with resources and opportunities to further engage your child/student in engineering activities. This session will take place on Saturday, 4/24 at 10am. You can register for this session at the link above.  See the promotional flyer.
