Expand the sections below to learn about SWE-Detroit outreach activities within the region.

The GEE team has compiled a list of STEM resources for K-12 girls interested in engineering. We have included information on events, summer camps, and attractions local to Michigan, scholarships for incoming engineering majors, STEM gift/toy ideas for the holidays, and free online activities.
Please share with your networks so that we may inspire the next generation of female engineers!​

Collegiate Transition Event
SWE-Detroit hosts an annual Collegiate Transition Event in the spring, where graduating seniors in the State of Michigan get the opportunity to network with SWE-D members. SWE-D sponsors their membership upgrade and encourages new members to participate in SWE-D activities. Keep an eye on the calendar for this event!

Girls Engineering Exploration (GEE)
GEE is an educational seminar for ~100 specially nominated 4th – 6th grade girls throughout Detroit Public Schools with a purpose of encouraging young women to explore engineering as a career. The full day event is usually held around National Engineering Week at Wayne State University in Detroit. Our goal is simple: to change girls’ negative opinion of science/technology/engineering/math and encourage girls to consider careers in these very important STEM fields.
