College of Engineering seeking women, companies to support engineering day event for high school girls

The College of Engineering is hosting an Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) event, commonly known as Girl Day, for about 200 high school girls from Wichita and the surrounding area. The event will be from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22 in 305/306 Rhatigan Student Center, Beggs Ballroom.

The students will participate in hands-on STEM activities, listen to inspirational female speakers, attend an industry fair featuring companies from STEM fields and meet women from the engineering and computing industries, including professionals, WSU faculty and students. There is still a need for companies from STEM fields to join the industry fair and for women from the engineering and computing industries to provide mentorship during the event.
