Celebrating the national movement dedicated to demonstrating to girls that engineering is creative and collaborative and how being an engineer can help change and improve our world.

The Franklin Institute joins the initiative to engage girls in all aspects of manufacturing and design and inspire them to consider careers in engineering with a day full of hands-on activities exploring the various branches—including mechanical, electrical, chemical, and more.

Visitors on this day will also have the opportunity to meet local female engineers and understand the significant role they have in shaping our future.

The event is in recognition of National Engineers Week (February 16-22), dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
