Girls Experiencing Engineering
Girls Experiencing Engineering (GEE) is a fast-paced, interactive summer program (structured in a series of one week, 20-hour intensive sessions) that seeks to instill young women with confidence, interest, and awareness of the wide array of career opportunities within science, technology, and engineering fields. This is achieved through hands-on, 'real world' project based curriculum and dynamic professional engineers serving as guest speakers in the program. Students have the opportunity to participate in general engineering sessions as well as focus sessions (discipline specific), with program material rotating each summer to accommodate repeat participants. The Women's Foundation for a Greater Memphis, the U of M's Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute, and Southeast Transportation Workforce Center are the key sponsors for this program.
The 2015 GEE Transportation Engineering Session was a great success and we can't wait
to do it again next year!
If you haven't yet, check out what happened this year during TREC! TREC is a 1-week transportation engineering session for high school boys.
