Every year, the EngineerGirl website sponsors a contest dealing with engineering and its impact on our world. This year’s topic, “Engineering and Animals,” asks students to tell your engineering ideas to improve life for endangered, critically endangered, and vulnerable animals.
EngineerGirl is a website designed by the National Academy of Engineering to bring attention to the exciting opportunities that engineering represents for girls and women.
The essay contest is open for all students (girls and boys) in grades 3-12 through February 1, 2017. Click here for more information!
