Go ENG Girl at Western University

What is Go ENG Girl?

Go ENG Girl is an exciting opportunity for Grade 7-10 girls to learn about the wonderful world of engineering: "A Caring Profession." 

Participants are able to learn from female professionals, academics and students as well as enjoy fun, hands-on activities, informative parents' sessions and engineering student exhibits. Last year's event saw Western Engineering welcome over 110 Grade 7-10 girls and their families to the exciting career of engineering.
