Advancing Women in Engineering

Sleeping Bag Weekend

AWE is excited to offer prospective high school junior women the opportunity to come to campus and spend time learning more about engineering and being a student at Penn! Students will be paired up with undergraduate women engineers who live on campus and will get the opportunity to visit classes, eat in the dining hall, hear from current students and meet with faculty and staff in Engineering. Space is limited for this event, not all who register will be able to attend.
