Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
February 18, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
Argonne‘s IGED gives young female students a unique opportunity to discover engineering careers alongside world-class scientists and engineers.
Participants will enjoy motivational presentations by female Argonne employees, tour Argonne’s cutting-edge research facilities, connect with a mentor, engage in hands-on engineering experiments, and compete in a team challenge — all designed specifically for 8th-grade girls.
While we continue to maintain everyone‘s safety and wellness, we will be moving the 2022 IGED to a virtual experience. Students will still be paired with mentors. Throughout the day, the students will be encouraged to participate in large and small group activities that provide them opportunities to learn about a number of STEAM careers.
