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. 20, 2020.  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. Participants will make a fun, hands-on project together and with the help of Sweet Briar engineering professors and students, explore campus, and meet professional engineers later that evening at our National Engineers Week Banquet.


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


Participation is free, but space is limited to 20 students.
