On February 20, 2014, women engineers, along with their male counterparts, will engage and mentor as many as one million girls around the country during the 13th Annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. The day offers workshops, lab tours, on-line discussions and interactive, hands-on activities at businesses, universities, libraries and other venues across the country.
In 2014, Girl Day is again highlighted by a live #STEMchat on Twitter, set for February 19th at 9:00 pm (ET). #STEMchat is a monthly Twitter conversation that brings together parents, educators and STEM professionals to share ideas and resources to raise STEM-loving kids. To participate in the #STEMchat, tweet #Girlday2014 or #STEMchat.
This year’s chat focuses on the school-to-career track in engineering for girls, with a specific focus on inspiring, motivating and ultimately retaining girls in the field.
