K-12 Outreach Committee


One of SWE’s core values is to encourage girls and young women to aspire to pursue careers in engineering and technology.  The goal of the SWE-LA Outreach Committee is to:

  • Introduce girls, and their parents and educators, to engineering through fun activities.  We want to provide girls with opportunities to interact with professional women engineers who can act as a role model for the many girls in the LA area who have never met an engineer, much less a woman engineer

  • Encourage older girls and young women to pursue engineering and technology careers.  Providing these girls with meaningful interactions with women engineers allows them to envision themselves as successful engineers.   SWE-LA also provides scholarship support to women at local colleges and universities who are pursuing engineering degrees
