Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day


NCDOT & WTS - NC Triangle Chapter

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day!  



The NCDOT and WTS NC Triangle are collaborating on a student outreach program for “Introduce a Girl to Engineering” Day on Thursday, April 11, 2019. High School   girls interested in engineering will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on transportation-related engineering activities and to participate in a question-and-answer session with female engineers  from various civil engineering disciplines. Our engineers will share the daily duties and skills necessary for their jobs while encouraging young women to maintain and improve their math and science skills, which are necessary to enter STEM careers in college.

With women making up only 12 percent of engineers in the United States, “Introduce a Girl to Engineering” strives to promote engineering as a desirable career option to young adults. 

WTS NC Triangle Chapter needs your help assisting with an engineering activity, lunch preparation and mentoring our student attendees.

Look here for other ideas of how you can mentor young girls.
