At the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) we strive to diversify the field by encouraging girls in grades K-12 to capture the spirit of innovation and open their eyes and minds to a rewarding profession.  That’s what we aspire to – and that’s what our outreach activities are about.

Check out the SWE National Outreach Website for educator resources, upcoming programs, and online activities for girls.
