UMass Amherst SWE and local Girl Scout troops celebrated Earth Day! 🌏 The Girl Scouts learned about renewable energy and made solar powered cars from recycled materials! The Girl Scouts also had a chance to learn about wind energy. UMass Amherst's Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition team showed the girls a wind turbine and wind tunnel that they have been doing research on. At the end of the day, the Girl Scouts tested and showed off their solar powered cars around the engineering quad! sWe had a blast! 🌞♻️💨🌍
Last night the UMass
Society of Women Engineers hosted a March Mudness Midterm stress relief event!
The girls painted ceramic pots, planted succulents, and ate pudding dirt cups!
It was a great way to step away from studying, socialize with other students, and
de-stress! sWe had a blast!
This past week UMass SWE headed to West Point, NY for the Region F Conference! At the conference, the girls were able to meet other SWE members from other colleges, attend workshops and talks, network with professionals and attend the career fair! It was a fun filled weekend and sWe were happy to be a part of it!
