SWENext DesignLab

SWENext DesignLab is an experience designed to encourage girls to choose a career in engineering. This is achieved through two concurrent programs:

  • Middle School Girls Program (Grades 6 – 8)
  • Parent Educator Program (PEP)

All girls registered for the SWE Girls Program will participate in a hands-on engineering experience with members of the Society of Women Engineers. Participants are asked to stay for the entire program.
