Various departments around campus will be hosting demonstrations that involve the young women.

Wait! Don't forget our poster contest! 


Girls are invited to create a poster and slogan that has to do with a changing theme each year. This year the theme is: Engineering isn't Just for Boys! 
Females are excelling in the male dominated world of science and engineering, and we are here to change it! So come up with a slogan and poster that addresses why "Engineering isn't Just for Boys!"


All students attending this event are encouraged to enter the Poster Contest. Posters may be drawings, photos, collages, or printed material and must be no larger than 16" x 22" poster board with the student's name, grade, school and teacher's name printed plainly on the upper right hand corner on the back side of the poster. All posters submitted will be displayed in the Surbeck Ballroom for the entire day. Winning Prizes will be awarded at the end of the event for the top two posters based on scientific and creative criteria.

We're looking forward to spending the day together!

Space is limited so remember to register early as the forms and the fees must be received by Friday, March 14, 2014.
