Cal Poly SWE Hosts Fourth Grade Days

March 01, 2018

During Engineering Week, Feb. 23-25, Cal Poly SWE introduced a record number of young students to the world of engineering.

As part of National Engineers Week, Feb. 20-23, members of Cal Poly’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) crisscrossed the Central Coast to introduce a record number of young students to the world of engineering. Almost 1,000 fourth-grade students in 31 classrooms throughout the region experienced engineering, collaboration and Learn by Doing through a variety of engaging hands-on team activities.

“By presenting fun and challenging activities and serving as role models, our SWE volunteers get to share their passion for math and science and all things related to engineering,” said Valerie Kettering, elementary outreach chair. “Our goal is to inspire girls and boys to see engineering and technology as an exciting field and rewarding career path.”
