Each summer, SMU's Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering sponsors the Engineering Camp for Girls, a week-long, half-day program designed to interest girls entering 8th-12th grade in the fall in engineering, a profession long dominated by men.

At the camp girls explore engineering through hands-on, interactive projects that show how engineering is related to social concerns, community interest and individual development.

 Objectives of the camp include:

  • Hands-on engineering experience through team project.
  • Discover careers in engineering from Dallas-based female engineers.
  • Learn leadership skills from a female engineer.
  • Learn about college: applications, entrance essays, financial aid.
  • Make new friends that share your interest in math, science and engineering!
