Wonderful, Outstanding, Noteworthy, & Determined, Engineering Ready Women”

WONDER Women will be a residential summer camp for young women entering the 6th grade through young women entering the 8th grade. The young ladies will experience what it means to be a female in engineering. They will explore all 8 different engineering departments here at MSU, including mechanical, civil, chemical, biomedical, and electrical, computer science, industrial, and aerospace, through different activities. Each young lady will receive a copy of Through My Window by Sonia Ellis. It is a book allowing women to delve in to the world of artificial intelligence, engineering design, and engineering ethics. Throughout the camp, the young ladies will be doing activities directly related to the novel.  During the student’s time with us, they will hear from a broad audience of women in engineering here at MSU and we will have round table discussions on how to be a successful woman in the field. This camp is to promote an encouraging environment, hopefully leading these women to choose a path in engineering.
