As of July a new board has been elected and is very excited to charge into the new year. We have many exciting events planned for students and for our professional members. There will be many opportunities to volunteer to help with one event or even become a SWE leader and become part of our outreach, fundraising, membership or scholarship committees. We do not pressure people to volunteer, and truly just enjoy seeing people have fun at our events.
We really are focusing on encouraging students to get excited about careers in math and science! Please contact us if you would like to participate in any of our events.
Engineer as Educator
We sponsored the Okaloosa County Engineer as Educator luncheon at the STEMM Center in Valparaiso, FL.
Led STEMM activities in Pensacola for middle and high school students.
We provided support to the University of West Florida collegiate SWE Chapter for their Girl Scout Badge Workshop. They host girl scouts for a one-day workshop on campus in the engineering building. The girl scouts attend presentations and engage in activities led by the collegiate swe members, that lead to earning an engineering related badge.
April 25, 2013
A Scholar's Week Event was held at the University of West Florida Conference Center
This symposium was sponsored by the Northwest Florida section of SWE and UWF School of Science and Engineering. We brought girls and women of all ages and backgrounds together to network with each other and share their personal experiences in support of helping students find out what it takes and what it is like to be an engineer.
