Getting Girls Interested In Engineering

Go ENG Girl is an event that every school of engineering across Ontario hosts for girls in Grades 7-10 in October of each year to introduce them to engineering as a potential career, and University of Waterloo (my alma mater) has their version on October 13th. I’m completely behind the idea of getting girls interested in engineering at an early age – I was, but I think I was a bit unusual in that regard – and I’m speaking at the Waterloo event to give a perspective to the girls’ parents on what engineering can give to their daughters.

If you have a daughter/granddaughter/sister/niece/friend who falls into that age range, consider suggesting that they attend.  Registration is free for girls and a parent/guardian to attend.
