I want to let you all know about a great event happening on campus this Saturday, October 16.
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is hosting Technically Speaking, an event for young women who are interested in science and engineering. I am really excited for Technically Speaking because of all the activities SWE has planned for the day. The former president of SWE, who graduated this spring, will be speaking about her experiences in the College of Science and Engineering. Also speaking about her experiences in industry will be a professional female engineer. There will be a really neat science demonstration and a design project for students.
Throughout the day visiting students will be meeting current members of the Society of Women Engineers and learning more about opportunities in science and engineering. I think this day will be really fun--I'm most excited for the design project!
If you are interested in science and engineering, this will be a great opportunity for you to connect with other women who share your same interests and learn more about the U of M. You can register for the event online, or call me for more information. I hope to meet you and your family on campus this Saturday!
