San Jose State University’s chapter of Society of Women Engineers welcomes you to their annual WOW! That’s Engineering event. Girls from local high schools are invited to the Diaz Compean Student Union on the SJSU campus to learn about engineering.

The event includes hands-on workshops that will allow girls to explore the different types of engineering fields, including software, biomedical, aerospace, and many others! There will be an Engineering Design Challenge that invites attendees to design a solution using engineering best practices. There will also be a keynote talk led by an established female engineer from the industry who will be sharing her personal experiences and career route into the tech world. We hope that the attendees leave with a new perspective about the engineering industry, and view it under a positive light that it is a creative and booming field.
