Congratulations to Wichita SWE for winning the Society of Women Engineers Region I Invested Professional Award!
“The Region I Invested Award was given to the Wichita section for its Engineering Expo. The objective of this event, held since 1998, is to celebrate Engineers’ Week and expose children in kindergarten through eighth grade to a variety of fields in science, technology, and engineering through interactive, entertaining activities. The Engineering Expo included over 31 booths and 105 volunteers from local organizations and members of the community who were recruited by the Wichita SWE section members. In accordance with SWE’s mission, Expo served to expand the image of the engineering profession by offering fun and educational activities. All the activities presented at Expo have real-world applications, including the use of robots, electrical circuits, bridge building, development of building materials, and using various methods of communication.”
