The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Girl Scouts of the USA, WGBH’s Design Squad Nation, and the ExxonMobil Foundation have teamed up for the third annual Invent It. Build It. event to be held at the SWE annual conference.
Invent It. Build It. is a hands-on, engineering experience for middle school girls with a parallel program for parents and educators. Our theme this year is Days of Energy.
The girls will work with SWE members from around the world on Design Squad Nation activities and meet Design Squad Nation host, Judy Lee.
Parents and educators will have a chance to network, participate in a panel discussion with select SWE members and outreach experts, and complete a hands-on activity.
Adults and students will have the opportunity to walk through Invent It. Build It. – Next Steps to learn about engineering clubs, camps, after-school programs and local competitions.
This event is designed to showcase the importance of women in engineering and encourage girls to consider pursuing a career in the field.
The event will take place on Saturday, November 10th from 10am -3:30pm and will be held next to the Houston convention center at
Hilton Americas- Houston
1600 Lamar St
Houston, TX 77010
