Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day


Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) is held in conjunction with National Engineering Week in February to increase interest in engineering among girls and raise awareness of the contributions engineers make to the community.

In past years, 7th and 8th grade girls from Iao, Kalama, Lahaina, Lokelani and Maui Waena Intermediate schools were invited to job-shadow local engineers from private sector companies and County of Maui engineering departments.

The day-long event usually includes an educational video showcasing the various types of engineering careers as well as a fun, hands-on engineering activities.

IGED is organized and hosted by the WIT Project in collaboration with the Hawaii Society of Engineers-Maui Chapter and the County of Maui.
