Sweet Briar hosts Explore Engineering events for high school women

Explore Engineering events are a series of weekend and residential summer engineering design courses at Sweet Briar College for high school women, with support from title sponsor AREVA Inc. and the National Science Foundation.

These events are built around hands-on, team-based design projects that emphasize creativity. No engineering experience is needed to attend.

Sweet Briar has now completed 5 years of Explore events! More than 240 high school women have attended one or more of these events.

Students have fun while working with engineering faculty and students. These events are a great way to see what engineering is all about — and to experience campus life at Sweet Briar. During each camp, students stay with college mentors.
