Students Hosting Engineering Event for Middle School Girls

UT engineering students (in gray shirts) help area middle and high school students during 2015's "Tomorrow's Engineers Today" event. UT's chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) helps stage the event, with backing from Eastman.

UT’s Society of Women Engineers chapter is hosting its third annual spring event, “Tomorrow’s Engineers Today,” which gives middle school girls a chance to come to campus for a day and get hands-on experience in various types of engineering.

CURENT Hosts ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers Today’

Twenty-six high school girls arrived on UT’s campus with an idea of what engineering was but after four hours of exploration they had a much clearer idea. The girls were taking part in a program called “Tomorrow’s Engineers Today,” organized by CURENT along with the campus’s chapter of Society of Women Engineers and TN-SCORE.
