Yearly Outreach Events

These outreach events bring MIT students together with kids as young as brownie girl scouts up to high school students. We're always looking for volunteers to make these events possible, so if you're interested in spending some time with younger students, please sign up for the SWE mailing list or contact the outreach chairs so we can notify you about our next event!

>> Brownie Girl Scout Engineering Day

MIT SWE hosts upwards of 75 Brownie Girl Scouts (age 5-8) for a morning of fun engineering and science activities.

>> Beaverdash

Each spring, the MIT Society of Women Engineers hosts a day-long design competition for high school students and MIT students who work in teams and solve complex engineering problems!

>> National Engineering Week at Boston Children's Museum

During National Engineering Week in February we send volunteers from MIT to the Boston Children's Museum to do engineering activities with children ages 0-12. This is an amazing opportunity to brighten the life of a child and have a lot of fun!

>> National Engineering Week Lobby 10 Booth

During National Engineering Week MIT SWE members sit at a Lobby 10 booth and encourage anyone from the MIT community to draw what engineering means to them on a square piece of paper. It's so amazing to see so many different and creative interpretations of engineering! In the end, all of these squares were pasted together in a collage to be displayed in the Boston Children's Museum.
