Girls and Engineering Day
Saturday, February 22 | 12 – 4 PM
Experience engineering with the girls in your life at Girls and Engineering Day at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History! This activity-packed afternoon combines hands-on engineering challenges, opportunities to work alongside amazing women engineers and so much more!
Simply stop by the Girls and Engineering Day check-in table after you purchase your exhibit admission tickets. Your girls (and boys) will receive a schedule and list of activities to complete. Once they complete the activities, return to the check-in table to receive a goodie bag of materials and resources.
Are you a Girl Scout Troop? Please register in advance here. Registration is not required for any other type of guests.
Discover all that Engineers Week has to offer here.
All activities are included with paid exhibit admission. Please note, activities are offered on a rotating basis. Engineers are onsite at varying times.
Here are a few of the experiences planned just for you!
Electrical Safety with Oncor: Attend a Live Line demonstration and complete hands-on challenges with Oncor engineers.
Flight Simulator Testing: Don’t miss the chance to fly in a Lockheed Martin simulator.
Meet Pepper the Robot: Learn about cognitive computing with IBM.
