High School Engineering Program

Comprised of high schoolers and a group of dedicated mentors, we aspire to help foster a nurturing environment for high school females to learn and explore their interests in engineering. Our 10-week program spans the weeks of 02/05-04/16 from 9am to 12pm every Saturday. There is no cost, as SWE provides everything. The program will be held in a hybrid format, with some students permitted to attend in-person on UC Berkeley's campus and some students remaining virtual through Zoom.

Through the course of the program, the students receive engaging lessons pertaining to various fields of engineering and are mentored in small teams to design and carry out an involved engineering project.
