Comprised of high schoolers and a group of dedicated mentors, we aspire to help foster a nurturing environment for high school females to learn and explore their interests in engineering. Our 10-week program takes place every Saturday, from 10 AM to 1 PM, online over Zoom. There is no cost, as SWE provides everything. However, the students are responsible for having a computer with a stable wifi connection. If this is an issue, please mention it in the application or send us an email.
