Attention Homeschool Community: Attend "Introduce a Girl to Engineering"

Introduce a girl to engineering

As part of National Engineers Week, the EnergyExplorium will host "Introduce a Girl to Engineering" on Friday, Feb. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The goal of "Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day" is to encourage future generations, particularly females, to pursue the diverse and gratifying career paths of engineering, science and math.

This event is open to middle and high school age students.

The event will include:

  • A presentation led by Duke Energy's Women in Nuclear (WIN) organization.
  • A panel discussion/Q&A with WIN - students are encouraged to come with questions.
  • Take part in a variety of hands-on, educational activities.
  • Watch a video about careers and women in engineering roles.

This free event will begin promptly at 9 a.m.

The presentation will focus on the different types of engineering, the education needed to become an engineer and the types of jobs available to engineers.

Our homeschool days are free, but space is limited. Registration is required. Please call the EnergyExplorium at 980.875.5600, or email energyexplorium@duke-energy.com. Be sure to register by Feb. 13. Please include your name, phone number and number of people attending when registering.

Note: This event is not only open to female homeschoolers, but families are encouraged to bring a girl who has an interest in engineering.
