Engineering Girls Summer Internship and NASA Learning Experience

The Engineering Girls Summer Internship is a residential internship program for middle-school female students co-hosted by the College of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts through the Center for Human factors in Advanced Aeronautics and Technology (CHAAT) Center. The program is designed to target middle school girls to participate in a rigorous lab-based workshops highlighting engineering and its application in real world. Participants are selected from a pool of high-performing 8th grade girls from local schools. The hands-on project-based program is intended to broaden student's knowledge of various aspects of the engineering discipline via curriculum designed to correlate with existing K-12 content standards.

Women Engineers/Engineering Girls @ the Beach Day

(WE@ the Beach, Fall 2008)

Women Engineers and Engineering Girls @ the Beach are innovative one-day on-campus programs to attract girls at various ages into science and engineering. The program is cohosted by the College of Engineering Recruitment and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) every semester. The event draws around 200 girls from Southern California elementary, middle schools, and high schools each semester. The scope of the program includes speaker events from leading women in the technology fields, workshops on various science and engineering disciplines and hands-on activities. WE @ BD won the Kimberly-Clark Outreach Award at the SWE National Conference in 2009. For more information, please visit the CSULB Society of Women Engineers website
