Volunteers sought, group booths available for Girl Day

The College of Engineering is looking for student volunteers or student organizations that would be interested in hosting a booth at Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) on Feb. 23.

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day helps focus a growing movement to inspire girls’ futures so they learn they have a place in engineering a better world. National “Girl Day” has been designated during E-Week (Engineers week) to promote engineering to females.

The 2nd annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Nebraska Innovation Campus (9 a.m.-noon). The day will be one of fun-filled hands-on engineering activities and conversations with professional female engineers and engineering students.

We hope to attract 400-500, youth (grades 3-12) and parents. Activity breakout sessions will be limited to 30-35 youth. There will be four rotations of each throughout the morning (each 35 min.).

Please target your activity toward a fifth-grade level that may be scaled up or down, depending on the group. Please make sure your activity is engineering related.


9-9:20 a.m. - opening

9:25 a.m.-noon - 4 breakout rotations of 35 min. each
