Strikes, Spares & SWE

strike-a-pose-1Strike a Pose- The ladies of the Society of Women Engineering bowled their way through Thursday at The Clubhouse. The outing was a chapter bonding event for newer and older members of the Georgia Southern University chapter.

The Society of Women Engineers is a national organization that is dedicated to providing support to women engineers as they advance their education, enter the work force or return to the engineering field. SWE, formed over sixty years ago, came at a pivotal point in women’s history as there were less than one percent of documented women engineers at the time of their assembly. The Georgia Southern University chapter of SWE is committed to carrying on the legacy of providing support and guidance to women who engineer.

Georgia Southern’s SWE does much work in community and career development as they host cv/resume workshops, visit Bulloch County elementary schools to provide hands on instruction of STEM projects and participate in the annual STEM fair.  SWE is currently fundraising through a t-shirt sale to fund the chapter’s activities, such as providing supplies for the elementary STEM projects.

The Georgia Southern University chapter of the Society of Women Engineers meets bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 6:00PM in the Engineering Building room 2110.
