Spring 2018 Explore Engineering Weekend Registration Opens
January 24, 2018

Registration is now open for two upcoming Explore weekends at Sweet Briar College : Explore Engineering on March 30-31 and Explore Engineering and Computer Science on April 13-14. Both events are open to high school girls in their sophomore, junior and senior years.

Explore events are ideal for beginners and advanced students alike, as they work in teams with Sweet Briar faculty and undergraduates on several fun and creative projects. The March weekend will be devoted exclusively to engineering, while participants in the April event will investigate the intersection of computer science and engineering through hands-on learning experiences that combine programming, engineering, creativity and teamwork. Over the past nine years, more than 400 students have attended an Explore Engineering event — including the fall and spring weekends and the weeklong summer course — designing and building such things as computer-controlled smart wearables, an automatically refilling pet bowl and sustainable building materials.

Priority registration ends on February 1st for Explore Engineering and on March 1st for Explore Engineering and Computer Science. The total cost for each event is $65, which includes room and board, snacks, supplies and a T-shirt.
