Connecticut Students Exploring Engineering Day

Join the Society of Women Engineers at Yale for an engineering extravaganza! Come learn about the different types of engineering and participate in exciting hands-on design challenges with other middle schoolers from across Connecticut. We also invite parents and educators to join us for a concurrent workshop, where we will provide strategies for continuing to engage your children in STEM.

Middle school students will participate in activities spanning various engineering disciplines, and will interact with professional engineers and engineering students throughout the day. A snack will be provided. Please note that these hands-on activities will be the same as the March CT SEED event.

For interested parents and educators, we will also offer optional programming during the event. Graduate students will discuss strategies for nurturing students’ scientific interests in the classroom and at home. There will also be an optional hands-on engineering activity.

Registration required! Limited spots available and registration will be open until we run out of available spots.
Open to students in grades 6-8!
