On Your Own: 6th Annual Women in Engineering DREAM Conference, Mar. 1

Registration is now open for Students, Adults and Volunteers for the 6th Annual Women in Engineering (WIE) DREAM Conference. Don’t wait. Register NOW!

The first 500 students who register and attend will receive complimentary conference bags with giveaways, and the high school that is most highly represented will be honored with a plaque of outstanding participation!

WHO: All high school students (grade 9 or higher – no exceptions), particularly girls. Parents, teachers and community members are invited to attend or volunteer, but MUST REGISTER. Each student may be accompanied by one (1) adult chaperone. We also encourage community college students with an interest in the A. James Clark School of Engineering to join us.

WHAT: Through interactive workshops, discussions and demonstrations, participants will be immersed in an exciting learning environment with the goal of igniting interest in engineering. The Clark School departments and student organizations like the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) along with our sponsors will participate in an information fair for attendees to enjoy at the end of the day.

WHEN: Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 9AM – 2:30PM

WHERE: Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park

WHY: The Women in Engineering Program was founded in 1995 to support women engineering students at the University of Maryland. Our mission is to recruit, retain and advance women in engineering through a variety of initiatives. Gender diversity in the field of engineering continues to draw national attention. Since 1996, the United States has seen a decreasing number of women enrolling as first-year students in engineering. In the Clark School, we are working hard to reverse that trend. We jumped from a class of 16.5 percent women in 2005 to 29.4 percent this fall! Programs like the WIE DREAM Conference help by showing students that engineering is not only an exciting career, but also one that is critical to improving people’s lives and the world around us.

The conference is FREE and includes lunch for students. Plus, students that attend the event and subsequently the Clark School at the University of Maryland will be eligible to apply for DREAM scholarships valued at up to $2,500!
