Engineering is beautiful

Tri-State Women in Computing and Engineering (TWICE) is now accepting registration for The Beauty of Engineering, a half-day workshop for girls in grades four through eight.

The workshop will take place Saturday, March 9 on the University of Evansville campus.

The cost is $6 per participant, and registration is open to individuals and organizations that wish to bring a group.

The Beauty of Engineering is an opportunity for girls to learn about engineering and computer science by rotating through four activity stations, each staffed by female professionals in the fields. Each station will feature a lesson and hands-on exercise. Advance registration is required.

Forms and information are available at the TWICE website, www.twice-evv.org, under "Upcoming Events."

Deadline for registration is March 4.

TWICE is made possible by a grant from the Alcoa Foundation in partnership with the University of Evansville College of Engineering and Computer Science.
