Engineers change the world all the time, inventing new ideas and making things more efficient and environmentally friendly. On Saturday, May 3, Stony Brook University’s Society of Women Engineers will present Discover Engineering Day for girls from ages 8 to 12 years old to learn more about engineering through hands-on activities. The event will be held at the Center for Global Studies and Human Development from 10 am to 4 pm.
Throughout the day, girls will participate in fun STEM-related activities that will hopefully inspire them to pursue STEM fields in their own lives and in future careers. Some of the activities include bridge building (statics), coding (computer science) and electronic matching (electrical engineering). Lunch will be provided; the cost is $10 per girl. Click here for the registration form. Each participant will receive a Society of Women Engineers badge and some other goodies to take home, plus have the chance to win the raffle prize — a Goldie Blox set.

Other SBU groups participating in Discover Engineering Day include Women in Science and Engineering, Alpha Omega Epsilon, Theta Tau Professional Engineering Fraternity and Women in Computer Science.
