WISE Girls Make Their Move

On International Women’s Day (March 8th) the Friends of Engineering was pleased to sponsor a special outreach event that inspired, celebrated and promoted women in engineering. Make Your Move, a unique outreach event presented by WISE-Kidnetic Energy, invited young women in grades 8-9 who have demonstrated leadership in their community, academics or athletics to a day of fun and challenges at the Faculty of Engineering. The girls, divided into teams, were each assigned a female engineer as a mentor and participated in design/build/test challenges meant to encourage teamwork, creativity and ingenuity.
