Time to Invent Outreach Opportunity for STEM Women

Are you a female undergraduate or graduate student in STEM? Are you all too familiar with being in the minority? Would you like to help change this for the next generation? Time to Invent is a great outreach opportunity through the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

Time to Invent (TTI) is an after-school outreach program focused on instilling a love of science and engineering in young girls. Once a month – for 2 hours – visit a local elementary school and lead 3rd-5th grader girls through hands-on science activities. Past activities have included building aluminum boats to learn about density and buoyancy and learning about absorption with common kitchen ingredients!

Why join?

  • Inspire the new generation
  • Help develop engaging science experiments for kids
  • Connect with UW female graduate/undergraduate students from other departments

SWE at UW has fantastic networking opportunities with employers and other professional women, leadership workshops, conference presentations, and more.
