Only 60 openings are available for the 2017 MTSU “Girl Day,” part of the worldwide campaign to introduce high school girls to the world of engineering.
MTSU’s free event will be held Friday, Feb. 24, in the Voorhies Engineering Technology and Davis Science buildings and Wiser-Patten Science Hall, organizers said. Girl Day is held during Engineers Week, Feb. 19-25.
Attendees should register through their high schools. For more information, visit http://mtsu.edu/et/includes/GirlDay.pdf.
“At MTSU, we want to encourage girls to explore engineering and technical careers,” said Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross, an award-winning chemistry professor and director of the campus’s Women in STEM (WISTEM) Center, a sponsor along with the Department of Engineering Technology.
MTSU has opportunities for girls in engineering technology, mechatronics engineering, aerospace and computer science, Iriarte-Gross added.
