EdGE (Educating Girls for Engineering)EDGE2005

A residential summer workshop for high school girls
  • Did you know that women constitute 51% of the population of the United States and 47% of the labor force, but that only 11% of today’s practicing engineers are women?
  • The EDGE program offers high school girls a unique opportunity to explore engineering in a way beyond basic math and science. EDGE participants use the engineering design and problem-solving skills they develop during the program to design and create toys and communication tools for disabled children at a local rehabilitation center.
  • More information and applications for the summer 2013 program are available.
