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 every Saturday, from 10 AM to 1 PM PST, online over Zoom. There is no cost, as SWE provides everything. However, the students are responsible for having a computer with a stable wifi connection. If this is an issue, please mention it in the application or send us an email.

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.
