Twitter Contest:

Since Go Eng Girl is turning 10 this year ONWIE has decided to have a twitter contest. All tweets that have included both the hashtag & the Twitter handle will be entered into a draw for a Chapters gift card.

The general format of the contest is as follows:

Parents & participants are encouraged to document their day at Go ENG Girl through the use of Twitter in the following fashion:

  • Ensure that all tweets include the hashtag #GEGturns10
  • Additionally, to differentiate between universities also include the university Twitter handle (for example if you are at the Go ENG Girl event at University of Windsor you would ask that all tweets include @UWindsorEng)

Student Responses:

  • "It was fun! Do it again next year!"
  • "I enjoyed my experience and learned a lot. It really helps when there are so many confusing mixed messages to have an event like this. I now have a greater understanding of what engineering is and am looking forward to possibly pursuing a career in it one day."
  • "I think this was awesome and that I want to come next year and I really hope that maybe we can build a car or something."
  • "I really enjoyed this engineering workshop. It really explained my knowledge of engineering. It broadened my interest and will most certainly influence my career choice in the future"
  • "It was a lot of fun and taught me a lot of things!"

Parent Responses:

  • "The personal experience of the professionals were very useful"
  • "Very informative, well organized. Liked the opportunity to discuss program with panel. Really impressed with presentation. I encourage you to continue promoting the field by visiting high schools in Windsor Essex and Lambton kent areas. This university has much to be proud of - need to get the message out."
  • "Great experience, informative and fun!"
