GO ENG Girl!
From an email to UofT Engineering Alumni from Marta Escedi.
GO ENG Girl! is an exciting event for young women in Grades 7 to 10 and their parents. On Saturday, October 14th all Faculties and Schools of Engineering in Ontario are presenting a GO ENG Girl! program which includes activities to showcase the wide range of undergraduate programs and careers that are available in engineering. . There will be opportunities to meet role models, to work on some "hands on" activities in small groups and to learn about student activities outside the classroom such as design projects and student organizations (e.g. Engineers Without Borders, Women in Science and Engineering). There is no cost to attend this event.
More information about the program, the links to the locations and on-line registration can be found at www.ospe.on.ca/goenggirl.
The GO ENG Girl! programs are being coordinated by Ontario Women in Engineering (ONWIE) group with the support of the Council of Ontario Deans of Engineering. All Faculties and Schools of Engineering are working together to encourage young women to study engineering and to make sure that old stereotypes of the profession are dispelled.
We hope that if you have a daughter or granddaughter in this grade grouping that you will bring her. Please feel to pass this on to your friends at work, community groups and your neighbours.
