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 takes place from 9am to 12pm every Saturday and occurs in the fall (September through November) as well as the spring (February through May) every year. There is no cost, as SWE provides everything.

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.
