Event: Girl Day at UT-Austin, Feb. 26, 2011

logo-girldayLevel: Grades 1-8. Date: Sat., Feb. 26, 2011, 2-5 p.m.

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) is celebrated internationally during Engineers Week each year. Families and educators are encouraged to join their students at UT for an afternoon of engineering fun. Girl Day gives 1st through 8th grade students a chance to have fun doing grade-specific, hands-on engineering activities; meet students, professors and engineers from industry; and see what it’s like to be an engineer

Activities for 1st-3rd graders, 4th-5th graders and 6th-8th graders are housed in UT’s engineering complex. Students are encouraged to build and experiment at their own pace with all of the age-appropriate activities in their specific building.  Engineering information will be available for parents/counselors/teachers, who are expected to stay with their students throughout the day.

Students are invited to take breaks throughout the day to explore open activities and the TAME Trailblazer Trailer. Pre-registered students who participate in at least six activities will get an awesome Girl Day T-shirt upon completing an evaluation form.
