Education and outreach

One of the main objectives of the Women's Engineering Society is to encourage engineering education, and this is done through a number of programmes:

  • National Women in Engineering Day – a national campaign to support girls with careers in engineering – 23 June annually @nwed1919
  • Sparxx – a social media platform to support girls who are interested in STEM where we compile and send out inspiring resources and information on a regular basis through twitter, facebook, email etc and @sparxxgirls  
  • Magnificent Women – our one day schools outreach activity sponsored by Northrop Grumman to encourage girls to think about engineering
  • Careers Literature from WES and our Engineer Girl website
  • Teacher Affiliate Scheme Sign up for free here  and register your school to become a WES Diversity Champion
  • WES Affiliated Student Support Groups
