Girls Engineering Exploration (GEE)

Description: Girls Engineering Exploration (GEE) is an educational seminar for ~100 specially nominated 4th – 6th grade girls throughout Detroit Public Schools with a purpose of encouraging young women to explore engineering as a career. The full day event is usually heald near National Engineering Week at Wayne State University in Detroit. Our goal is simple: to change girls’ negative opinion of engineering/technology/math/science and encourage girls to consider careers in these very important fields. 

Contact the GEE chair at swe_detroit@swe.org for more information on how you can help.
