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.
CEW is a non-residential summer day camp for girls currently in 6th or 7th grade. Although housing will not be provided, but there are many hotels around the campus. This weeklong session will be 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.
