Summer WIEP event to introduce girls to Purdue engineering
Purdue's Women in Engineering Program will offer rising seventh- through ninth-graders a free daylong engineering event calle "Engineering FYI: For Your Imagination" on July 14.
"Engineering FYI: For Your Imagination" will focus on girls interested in making a difference in the world through engineering and science. The program, which runs from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., will offer hands-on activities where the student’s imagination, teamwork and leadership can be applied.
Students will be chaperoned and connected with a trained College of Engineering student who will serve as a mentor. Lunch will be provided to participants. Parents of registered students may attend an informational session on the day of the event.
