Women In Engineering Program Offers Career Days For High School Women

September 17, 1999

The Women in Engineering Program at the University of Colorado at Boulder has scheduled two Engineering Career Days for High School Women this academic year.

The all-day programs on Tuesday, Oct. 5, and Saturday, March 4, will introduce ninth through 12th grade women to the field of engineering and engage them in hands-on demonstrations and activities. Participants also will hear from professional women engineers and meet current engineering students.

Activities will be held at the Engineering Center on the CU-Boulder campus. Parents, teachers and counselors also are welcome to attend.

Supported by a grant from the RGK Foundation, Career Day registration is $7.50 per person, including lunch. The deadline for registration is approximately 10 days prior to the event -- Sept. 24 for the first day, or Feb. 21 for the second day. Each Career Day is open to 125 participants.

Call (303) 492-0083 for more information and registration.
