Celebrate #UTGirlDay with @UTWEP
Join us Saturday, February 20, 2021 through Monday, March 1, 2021 for Girl Day 2021! All activities will be virtual.

Girl Day at UT Austin, including Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day and the Girl Day STEM Festival, will be held virtually Saturday, February 20, 2021 through Monday, March 1, 2021. Students and their parents or educators are invited to join us for 10 days of virtual FREE hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fun.

UT’s national award-winning Girl Day, presented by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP), gives elementary and middle school students a chance to explore STEM through grade-appropriate, hands-on activities hosted virtually by volunteer scientists, engineers, and STEM enthusiasts from over 100 student organizations, research centers, corporate partners and community organizations. Both girls and boys are welcome!


This is a chaperoned event. All students participating in the virtual Girl Day experience must participate with an adult. 

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) is an international event celebrated during Engineers Week each year. The conclusion of Girl Day at UT Austin on Monday, March 1, 2021 coincides with Texas Girls in STEM Day and the beginning of Women's History Month.
