The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) at The University of Texas at Austin is now accepting applications for its summer program for middle school girls: Careers in Engineering for Women (CEW). This non-residential day program is designed to introduce students to engineering. The long-term goal of CEW is to increase the representation of women in the field of engineering. During this
unique, interactive, and fun week long experience, CEW participants will put their math and science skills to practical use.
Careers in Engineering for Women (CEW)
- Non-Residential summer camp for girls currently in 6th or 7th grade
- Weeklong session held June 11-15, 2012
- Forty exceptional middle school students will be accepted to attend
During CEW, participants will explore different aspects of engineering through hands-on activities and challenges. The girls will work in teams to design, construct, and implement solutions to exciting
engineering problems. Students will also interact with industry personnel, Cockrell School of Engineering faculty, and energetic UT Austin engineering students.
We need your help in distributing information about CEW to teachers and students. The CEW application along with a brochure is available online at:
Applications must be postmarked by February 15, 2012
More information about CEW is available on the website above. If you have any questions about CEW, please contact us at cew [at] engr [dot] utexas [dot] edu. We look forward to hearing from your students
