Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

As part of National Engineers Week, we invite high school girls (grades 9-12) from across the region to join us for Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day at Sweet Briar on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023.  Sweet Briar’s Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day celebration is a great way for high school girls to learn what engineers do and try out engineering for themselves. Working in groups, participants will engineer a fun, hands-on project with the support of Sweet Briar engineering professors and students, explore campus, and meet professional engineers at our National Engineers Week Banquet later in the evening.


  • Hands-on engineering projects with SBC engineering faculty and students
  • A walking tour of campus
  • Dinner at the National Engineers Week Banquet on campus that evening

Note: While student participants are provided with a ticket to the National Engineers Week Banquet that evening, tickets for family members etc. are not included and must be purchased separately.


Participation is free, but space is limited to 18 students.
