Let's have fun with engineering, all while making memories at the University of Kentucky! Girls grades 2-5 and their mothers or other female role models are invited to Go Girl!, UK Engineering's engineering sleepover for elementary school girls. During this special, overnight event, you'll even spend the night in a new University of Kentucky residence hall! Come make new friends and try some hands-on engineering projects.
During Women in Engineering (WIE) Day, high school women grades 10-12 will interact with alumni, faculty, staff and students as they explore UK Engineering. Learn about the process of applying to UK, listen in as female faculty members discuss their experience as a woman in engineering and engage with current leaders in the UK Society of Women Engineers. The next WiE Day is September 19, 2019. Please check back in August 2019 for registration.
Engineers Day, or E-Day, is a celebration of everything engineering has to offer.
