Engineer Girl
The EngineerGirl website is a service of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). It grew out of the work of the Committee on the Diversity of the Engineering Workforce, and was launched in February of 2001. The EngineerGirl website is part of an NAE project to bring national attention to the opportunity that engineering represents to all people at any age, but particularly to women and girls. Bright, energetic girls from all around United States and Canada helped the NAE with the initial development of this site by serving on the Girls Advisory Board. The ongoing work of the site is overseen by the EngineerGirl Steering Committee. and we owe our continued existence to the generous support of our sponsors.
