Women in Engineering hosts opportunities for middle and high school students to be inspired and explore engineering as a potential career. Programs provide the chance to build new friendships, boost confidence, and foster a sense of community.
If you are looking for information about Exploring Engineering at the University of Maryland (E2@UMD), eMpower Tools, and Engineers' Night Out (ENO), please know that they are currently suspended through summer 2021. We are eager to host in-person programs as soon as it is safe to do so.
For the safety of our community, WIE programs through summer 2021 will be virtual.
WIE Run the World 93 Minute Virtual Movement Challenge!
This virtual, community-building event honors Jeanette Epps (M.S. ‘94, Ph.D. ‘00), who in 2021 will become the first African-American woman to join an International Space Station Crew. The International Space Station orbits the earth roughly every 93 minutes. Therefore, we challenge participants to complete 93 minutes of movement during Women's History Month in March. Any activity counts — walking, biking, swimming, running, hiking — whatever makes them feel empowered, encouraged, and strong!About the Challenge
WIE Change the World: An Introduction to Engineering
This virtual program is geared toward high school-aged women who are considering majoring in engineering and potentially pursuing it as a career. This week-long virtual program will introduce participants to the various disciplines of engineering through engaging lessons and lectures, hands-on activities, and conversations with faculty, staff, and students in the Clark School of Engineering.
How Can Data Predict What is Next?
Are you interested in how data can predict "what's next", create compelling arguments, or guide our actions and decisions? Then this summer experience might be for you! Data science demonstrates how we use data to characterize, visualize, and operationalize our decision-making processes . Modeling and analyzing data form the foundation of policies you are affected by, public planning you interact with, how economies operate, and more.How Can Data Predict What is Next?
