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, & 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 & career route into the tech world. We hope that the attendees leave with a new perspective about the engineering industry, & view it under a positive light that it is a creative & booming field.
**Registration final deadline is March 18th**
When: Saturday, March 25th
Where: One Washington St, San Jose, CA 95192 (Diaz Compean Student Union at San Jose State University)

ENGINEERING DESIGN CHALLENGE
Hosted by Lockheed Martin, here is this year's Engineering Design Challenge prompt:
How can you design & build a cost efficient moon rover using physics principles & available sustainable materials?
Students will work in small groups for one hour to produce a final moon rover model that will be judged by representatives from Lockheed Martin for the opportunity to win various prizes.
