    BWS SWE will introduce girls to engineering and science by offering engaging hands-on projects and career exploration activities for girls through the Girls Go Techbridge program, Engineers To The Rescue. The projects highlight the Engineering Design Process and invite girls to brainstorm, design, build, test, and re-design. This experience gives girls a flexible, practical approach to problem solving that they can apply to a wide range of subjects. The student will also interact with STEM role model volunteers and explore careers to become inspired.

    Volunteers are needed from 9:00am-3:30pm.

    The event begins promptly at 10:00am and ends at 3:00pm.
