Girls Exploring Technology: Open to 9th and 10th grade girls: April 30 2022
Meet women in various STEM careers and network
Engage in hands on STEM activities
Attend the event by filling out the registration form available from the site listed below.
Background: Girls Exploring Tomorrow’s Technology (GETT) began in Chester County, Pennsylvania in 2001 as a response to the under-representation of young women in the computer and information technology fields. Since that time, GETT has expanded its geographical footprint to include students from all around Southeastern Pennsylvania and now showcases the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
GETT is an initiative of the Innovative Technology Action Group (ITAG), a program under the Chester County Economic Development Council, and is driven by the volunteer efforts of numerous public, private and educational organizations, along with public and private investments.

Want to make an impact in the STEM community as a female?
Attend Widener Engineering Mini-Camp for HS Girls!!Date: March 19 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Registration closes March 7th, Limited capacity so register today!
Girls in grades 10 -11 are invited to spend the day exploring engineering careers with volunteers from Widener's School of Engineering and from the Philadelphia section of the Society of Women Engineers.
Parents are invited to attend a separate program entitled "Sending Your Daughter to Engineering School." Learn about academics, cooperative education and student life as well as what to expect if your daughter majors in engineering in college. The program will be conducted by women engineers from SWE and Widener University, and by personnel from Widener's School of Engineering and Career Development Office.
The camp will consist of labs from Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, and Robotics Engineering:

Our non-profit is actively seeking student applicants within the Greater Philadelphia School Area and can offer scholarships to qualified students who need assistance with transportation to our teaching facility in Willow Grove, PA. Visit the Center for Forensic Science Research and Education (CFSRE) for more information about our facility. Read about the Fredric Rieders Family Foundation and more about FMI.
Application deadline is April 29th, 2022
Interested in Chemical Engineering?
Join us for our Chemical Engineering Mini-Camp!!
Join chemical engineering alumni and faculty for a half-day event where you will engage in hands-on activities, learn about the chemical engineering program at Widener, take a tour of the state-of-the-art facilities, and learn the role chemical engineers have in designing a sustainable future.
The camp is being hosted on February 25th at 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Check out the full event schedule here: https://www.widener.edu/
University of Pennsylvania’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
My name is Shriya Karam and I am writing on behalf of the University of Pennsylvania’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE). SWE is a national non-profit organization that aims to advocate and increase opportunities for women in engineering and technology fields. The Penn SWE chapter does this through the annual Girls in Engineering and Related Sciences (GEARS) Day for high school students.
GEARS Day is an annual event for women and non-binary high school students to explore engineering majors and careers alongside Penn Engineering students. This year, GEARS Day will take place VIRTUALLY on January 8th-9th and January 15th-16th, 2022 with an OPTIONAL IN-PERSON COMPONENT (date TBD). Participants will be placed into small groups consisting of 10-12 students and 2 Penn student leaders to research and design creative solutions to an engineering project. Additionally, we will have a keynote speaker event and an optional mentorship program between Penn SWE students and groups of 2-3 high school students. Please see the schedule of events below:
Saturday - Sunday, January 8th-9th, 2022 (virtual)
GROUP PROJECT MEETINGS (1 hr)
Saturday, January 15th, 2022 (virtual)
3:00 pm: INTRODUCTION + KEYNOTE SPEAKER
3:30 - 4:30 pm: FINAL PROJECT GROUP MEETINGS
Sunday, January 16, 2022 (virtual)
10:00 - 11:00 am: GROUP PROJECT PRESENTATIONS
There will be an optional, in-person component that will be held later next semester that is TBD. We are committed to providing this in-person experience on the University of Pennsylvania campus for your students and will inform you of the date when it is confirmed.
The GEARS Day application link is here: https://forms.gle/
Applications will close on Wednesday, December 8th at 11:59 p.m. Final decisions will be sent out in mid-December.
We hope that GEARS Day serves as a great opportunity for your students to learn more about engineering in a fun, interactive environment. We will try to accommodate as many participants as space and resources allow; however, priority will be given to students from the School District of Philadelphia.
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns regarding GEARS Day. Thank you for your time and help in promoting the success of the next generation of women in engineering.
