Girl Day at UT Austin, presented by different corporate partners each year, is a FREE event for K-8 students presented by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP) at The University of Texas at Austin.
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!
Girl Day at UT Austin began in 2001 with only 92 participants and has grown to over 8,000 participants registered in 2020.
Girl Day is an international annual event held during Engineers Week! Engineers Week is always the week in February that encompasses George Washington's birthday, February 22nd, as he is recognized as the nation's first engineer.
