Huffington Post blogger Diane Propsner has written a great story spotlighting Sweet Briar’s 2015 fall Explore Engineering for High School Women program, complete with several accompanying photographs submitted by SBC student photographers.

Propsner said, “One of the best ways to see more female engineers is by transmitting the message that women make excellent engineers and showing girls and young women what engineering is all about. Programs like Explore Engineering are vital to this goal, as is Sweet Briar College’s undergraduate engineering program.”

She goes on to praise the College’s engineering program, saying that, since its creation in 2005, “Sweet Briar College has graduated female engineers, time and time again. Alumnae are prepared to either launch an engineering career upon graduation or continue on to graduate school.”
