Registration has filled and we are not taking any additional registrations. We are beyond capacity this year. Please see our website to sign up for our eNewsletter to hear about upcoming STEM events including Girl Day for next year.

Students and their parents or educators are invited to UT for an afternoon of engineering fun. UT’s national award winning Girl Day, presented by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP), gives over 2,000 first through eighth grade students a chance to:

- have fun doing grade-specific, hands-on engineering activities,
- meet students, professors and engineers from industry, and- see what it's like to be an engineer.

HOW IT WORKSActivities for 1st - 3rd graders, 4th - 5th graders and 6th - 8th graders are housed in UT's engineering complex. Students are encouraged to create and experiment at their own pace with all of the age-appropriate activities in their specific building. There are no volunteers or guides to take students around to the activities, so parents, counselors, or teachers are expected to remain with students during the event.
