Encouraging girls to be engineers

The fifth annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is scheduled for February 2005. Organizations worldwide will mobilize tens of thousands of engineers to reach one million girls that day and throughout the year through mentoring activities.

“Girl Day”, part of Engineers Week (February 20 to 26) is a worldwide event aimed at increasing interest in engineering among girls and young women. In the U.S., only 10% of all engineers are women. The hope is that by planting the seeds of interest early, girls will maintain their math and science skills and be well prepared to enter engineering programs in college.
