The high school girls have an opportunity to learn more about the various fields of engineering via a number of hands-on workshops. In the spring WIE participates in the national Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day bringing middle school girls to campus to engage in a number of hands-on activities, student panels, and a chance to learn how engineering can make the world a better place.
