This year, the U of U SWE section is pleased to announce that we will be hosting two Girl Scout Nights, in order to reach more girls!
Girl Scout Day 2014: “Edible Engineering”
Our annual event for Girl Scouts, grades 4-12, will be held February 21st, 2014, and will coincide with “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day”, put on by Eweek! We are very excited about “Edible Engineering”, and will be offering a super selection of activities, including liquid nitrogen ice cream, cooking with electro-chemistry, and a mock pudding factory. Girl will learn about how engineering relates to the food we eat, and get to taste test their own engineering experiments. Girls will also get an awesome t-shirt and patch to commemorate “Edible Engineering”.
Adults (parents, educators, grandparents, ect) are invited to attend our “Grow your own Engineer” session, free of charge, with their registered girl. this session will educate adults about women in STEM and about getting their daughters excited and keeping them involved in STEM. There will be publications available with easy engineering/STEM activities that can be done at home!
Registration will be through the Girl Scouts of Utah, and can be found here. Keep checking back for updates!
Engineering: It’s a Girl Thing Jr
For the first year, we will be hosting an event for young girls, in grades K-5 (Daisies, Brownies and Juniors). This event will be held in the Warnock Engineering Building on November 8th, 2013, a Friday evening. Our event will focus on exploring different kinds of engineering, such as robotics, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and chemical engineering.
Registration will be through the Girl Scouts and can be reached at their website here. Activities will be different from last year’s Engineering: It’s a Girl Thing.
