Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) helps focus a growing movement to inspire girls’ futures so they learn they have a place in engineering a better world. National “Girl Day” has been designated during E-Week (Engineers week) to promote engineering to females.
The 2nd annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day will be held on Saturday, May 11 at the Nebraska Innovation Campus (9am-12:30pm) in Lincoln. The day will be one of fun-filled hands-on engineering activities and conversations with professional female engineers and engineering students.
We already have over 500 youth and parents registered. Activity breakout sessions will be limited to 30-35 youth. There will be 4 rotations of each throughout the morning (each 35 min.). Please target your activity towards a 5th grade level that may be scaled up or down, depending on the group. Please make sure your activity is engineering related.

9:25-12pm - 4 breakout rotations of 35 min. each
