Mother & Daughter Engineering Day
Each April, sixth through ninth grade girls and their mother or guardian are invited to attend the Women in Engineering Center’s annual Mother & Daughter Engineering Day.
Students and families have the opportunity to learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields, participate in engineering activities, interact with the Society of Women Engineers and faculty, share lunch with current women students, hear from special speakers and visit the MizzouRec and campus bookstore. The event is free to all students and is limited to 30 registrants.
Women in STEM Night
Women in STEM Night is hosted annually as part of the Women in Engineering Center Student Board’s Women in Engineering Week. The night is an opportunity for area elementary and middle school students and their parent or guardian to learn more about the history of women in engineering. Members of the Student Board prepare interactive presentations that showcase five to six women in history who have made a significant impact in engineering. Student Board members dress up as these prominent women engineers and discuss their accomplishments with attendees. Students are exposed to possibilities in engineering through this event.
The University of Missouri’s College of Engineering hosts a number of additional K-12 activities including Lego camps, summer programs and weekend events. The College develops workshops and provides resources for elementary school, middle school and high school students and teachers.
