Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

Girl Day is a movement that shows girls how creative and collaborative engineering is and how engineers are changing the world.

Girls construct. Girls build. Girls create. Girls become women who are engineers.

In the long history of engineering, women have had more than a say in building infrastructure and all the important engineering elements that help civilization advance. From the Countess Ada Lovelace, who worked with Charles Babbage to create the first computer’s programming language in the 1840s, to such modern engineer astronauts as Dr. Mae Jemison, women have contributed to increasing engineering knowledge and building the structures that modern civilization relies on.
