The High School Girls Day, sponsored in part by Shell, is an outreach and recruitment event, hosted by the OU chapter of the Society of Women Engineers and the OU Women in Engineering Program, and provides the opportunity for prospective high school women to engage with faculty from various engineering disciplines, and interact with school administration, staff, academic advisors and current students.
This program, hosted by the OU Society of Women Engineers and the OU Women in Engineering Program, is sponsored in part by Shell. The event provides high school girls with hands-on STEM learning experiences in different engineering disciplines as well as the opportunity to talk to professors, college advisors, and OU students.
