Students and families, please see the document below and plan to attend our Governor’s School Information Night.
The Society of Women Engineers at the University of Virginia invites high school juniors and seniors to apply to our High School Visitation program on Saturday, November 18th, 2017. The program gives young women a comprehensive look at engineering fields and UVA’s engineering curriculum through informative speakers and hands-on design activities. The program is designed to benefit participants with all levels of engineering experience, but we particularly target those students who are not yet familiar with the field and may be interested in applying to engineering schools or pursuing a STEM career.
To apply, students should complete the HSV Fall 2017 Application which can be found here. This fall session particularly targets high school seniors, but sophomores and juniors can also apply. Students who have previously applied to HSV, are in the targeted grade level, and demonstrate a strong interest in engineering through their essay will receive priority acceptance and priority consideration for an overnight stay.
The attached flier provides more information about the event and instructions on how to apply online through our website.
The application must be completed online by 11:59 pm on Saturday, October 21st, 2017.
See your school counselor if you have any questions.
Seniors have begun the process of meeting with their counselor to discuss their upcoming graduation, and their plans for the years to come. Seniors, in order to get the most out of this meeting, please do the following:
- Come Prepared. This meeting is your time to ask your counselor any and all questions you may have about everything from industry certifications to the FAFSA to second semester early release. Do not hesitate to let us know what is on your mind – that’s why we’re here!
- Have an Open Mind. Your counselor will work with you to make your goals a reality, and they may also have a few different ideas of different pathways that may work for you as well. We work best when we work together.
- Be Ready to Work. You will leave your senior meeting with lots of new information and several different pathways ahead of you. Remember that in order for any of them to work for you, you must be willing to work for them!
Do you like to wade in streams, program computers, observe animals, grow vegetables, collect minerals or fly drones? If you answered yes to any one of these, you may be a budding environmental scientist!
Discover what it’s like to work as an environmental scientist by joining us Oct. 13-14, 2017, for a weekend of hands-on learning and problem solving. You’ll spend time in the forests and streams on Sweet Briar’s expansive campus, collaborating with Sweet Briar environmental science professors and students to collect and analyze data relevant to a contemporary environmental challenge. You’ll stay in one of our historic residence halls with environmental science student mentors, explore our beautiful campus and get a taste of life as a college student.
This event is open to high school girls in their sophomore, junior and senior years.
