Day of activities to explore opportunities engineering offers young women

The engineering profession offers a wide range of career opportunities to young women, from designing pollution control equipment, to supervising construction of a building, to managing hospital schedules. The possibilities of these well-paid jobs are nearly endless.

On Saturday, October 13, the University of Windsor wants to introduce local students to some of them.

Go Engineering Girl, now in its eighth year, will provide girls in grades 7 through 10—and their parents—a chance to learn more about engineering as “a caring profession.”

Hosted by the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Engineering, the event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants will enjoy hands-on activities, informative sessions for parents, and engineering student exhibits. A free lunch will follow where everyone will have a chance to talk with engineering students and view their projects.

Go Engineering Girl is free but registration is limited. For more information, or to register for this free event, visit, or contact Katia Benoit at 519-253-3000, ext. 2040, e-mail or Mike Konstantino at 519-253-3000, ext. 2578, e-mail
