UWP Women in Engineering Fall Career Day features hands-on activities
PLATTEVILLE-Move over, guys. Engineering is no longer a male-dominated career. Female students in grades 8-12 will have an opportunity to explore engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Fall Career Day set for Friday, Nov. 8.
Hands-on activities and discussions are designed to introduce young women and their guests to the engineering profession.
Two UWP engineering students will serve as motivational keynote speakers.
The program, which will be held from 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., will begin with a group-resume building activity and include presentations from engineering disciplines. A demonstration of student projects will involve student participation.
Participants will meet in the Ullsvik Center and are required to pre-register by calling Tammy Salmon-Stephens, director of UWP's Women in Engineering program, 608-342-1563, or by visiting the website: http://www.uwplatt.edu/wep.
The $10 application fee includes lunch and a t-shirt.
Parents, teachers and counselors and other interested guests may attend at no cost.
