Thank You!

Thank You for Volunteering at 
WOW! That's Engineering!

A big thank you to everyone who volunteered, advertised, and participated in the SWE-CI 2016 WOW! That's Engineering! event on April 9! We had 114 girls and 26 parents join us at IUPUI for a day of engineering exploration and design challenges! Girls learned about circuits while building light-up picture frames, and explored the basics of HTML searches. They dabbled in chemical, materials, electrical, and mechanical engineering, and put their design minds to the test to solve real-world problems. We also enjoyed a keynote speech from Andrea Kimberlin, Miss Kentucky International 2016, who shared with us some of the many fun ways girls are transforming technology. The event was a big success, and we look forward to the next one! Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this day fun and educational for girls in our community.

Andrea Kimberlin, Miss Kentucky International 2016
