The Society of Women Engineers
(SWE) will be hosting the 25th Annual Horizons Conference on March 21 at St.
Cloud State University. This conference is an outreach event for junior high
to high school age girls, with the aim to motivate their interest in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It is a one-day event
that includes hands-on workshops and team projects. We are asking your support
in spreading the word about Horizons, which has always been a wonderfully fun
day for the girls. Women can do very well in engineering and science, but many
girls may not know or believe this. SWE would like to change
Workshops this year include
competing with a robot to learn about the magic of robotics, using the
scientific method to experiment with light and lasers, and learning the
basics of video game design and creation through cooperation and computer

Girl Scout Gold Award Mentor Committee Training | Saturday, April 18 | 9 AM-4:30 PM |Caribou Coffee, St. Cloud
Why consider being part of the Girl Scout Gold Award committee? Those who are already on the committee will tell you that it is fun. Really! They might also tell you how rewarding it is to see girls develop through the Gold Award process. We see such a transormation. Something magic happen between their first sometimes shaky interview with the committee to that final meeting several months later. When girls return to present their final report, we see articulate, poised and confident young women. Young women who know that through their hard work, creativity and determination, they truly and concretely made the world a better place.
We are seeking additional committee members from all corners of our council; consider joining us April 18 in St. Cloud to part of this dynamic and purposeful goup. Meals and volunter mileage reimbursement provided. For more information, please contact Director of Program Tricia Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
