ISyE Students Participate in National Engineering Week

Primary tabs

In celebration of National Engineering Week, ISyE students served as volunteers in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day and Engineers Day.

Lesley-Anne Harris and Ginny MacGowen, ISyE undergraduate students, served as mentors to more than 200 middle school girls in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day organized by Women in Engineering.Chosen because of their social and engaging nature, both women stood out while counseling these young girls on what engineering is all about.

The day started out with a series of workshops and hands-on demonstrations by companies (including IBM) and students. Activities included creating a roller coaster out of insulation foam and structures out of gum drops and toothpicks. After settling down for lunch, Harris and MacGowen spoke to the girls about engineering, highlighting their experience in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

The Institute of Industrial Engineers GT chapter (IIE) participated in a fun-filled day on Feb. 19, on Skiles Walkway. In conjunction with other engineering societies, IIE celebrated National Engineering Week with a day of free, fun festivities, food, games, prizes, and give-aways. There was an all-day competition between different engineering organizations showcasing their engineering discipline with hilarious and entertaining demonstrations.
