Mother Daughter Day event to be held at Wichita State

The Society of Women Engineers student organization is hosting a Mother Daughter Day event for local middle school girls and their adult female role models. The event will run from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 25 in the John Bardo Center lobby.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in four STEM activities designed to introduce different types of engineering, including aerospace, mechanical, electrical and biomedical engineering. Attendees will also meet and interact with female students from the college, which will help middle school girls envision themselves in the field.

In addition to mothers and daughters, other adult female role models of middle school girls, such as grandmothers, aunts, sisters and mentors, are welcome to attend the event.
