Develop, Design, Discover: Women Innovating with Technology Week

Beginning on March 8th at our “Wow! That’s Engineering?” event in Chicago, and continuing through April 19th, the Society of Women Engineers is holding an essay contest asking girls ages 10 to 17 to write, in 100 words or less, about an invention/innovation they would create, using technology, to make the world a better place.

Girls will enter to win the ultimate grand prize: a trip to IBM Headquarters in Armonk, NY, where they will spend the day working with a leading engineer at IBM. Additional prizes will include a week at Camp Invention, laptops, MP3 players and more.

Enter the contest

In addition to Chicago events are planned for: Austin, Orlando, Philadelphia, Raleigh and San Francisco. See the web site for more details.
