As part of the initiative to change the perception and representation of women in STEM, The Society of Women Engineers is hosting Invent It. Build It in Nashville on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015.
The day-long program that runs adjacent to WE15, the world’s largest conference for women in engineering and technology, gives girls in grades 6-8 an opportunity to not only learn about careers in engineering, but how engineering plays a role in everyday life. Girls who attend Invent It. Build It will have access to some incredible, inspiring women engineers to learn more about how exciting this career path can be. They will partake in hands-on group activities and see how engineering plays a role in everyday life.
Invent It. Build It. will feature keynote speaker Sylvia Acevedo who will discuss her career path and how rewarding a career in engineering can be for women. Sylvia was named one of the top 100 American Women in STEM by US News and World Report in 2012. She started her career as a rocket scientist at Jet Propulsion Labs and has since worked for companies including Apple, IBM, Autodesk and Dell.
