- Unfortunately we've had to cancel our February 23 event. Please register for the workshop on March 30 if you're interested in the program
- Sunday, March 30
- Session time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
- Location: the Clipper Room in Shriver Hall
- Theme: Sports
In each session the girls will first learn about the engineering design process and about the theme of that session's activities. Then, the students will split into groups to work on the group design projects. Each group will design a device to perform a specific task related to the theme of the session. Creativity is encouraged - every idea is worth exploring!
Girls will also have the opportunity to interact with Johns Hopkins engineering students, as well as to meet local women who have found success and fulfillment in exciting engineering careers.
Financial support for this program is provided by the Alumni Association and the Center for Social Concern at Johns Hopkins University.
