The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) at NJIT has recently been awarded a grant to support their continued goal of increasing the number of women studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  The award, funded by ExxonMobil, is part of the national SWE grant competition for K-12 (pre-college) outreach programs.  Led by the undergraduate president, undergraduate outreach coordinator, and graduate coordinator, Marina Saint-Val, Rimmy Garg and Yasmine Aly respectively, the proposal, "Innovation Through Imagination," aims at promoting and consolidating the interest of pre-college women in STEM through various fun and thought provoking projects.  The outreach event, scheduled for April 12 from 8:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. in ECEC 202, will be led by NJIT's SWE members.  The executive board members of SWE at NJIT would like to thank the national SWE headquarters and ExxonMobil for funding and the promotion of the aims and goals of SWE as a whole through the outreach event.
