Puerto Rico Re-Discovers “WOW! That’s Engineering!®”

The need for the United States to build a new generation of leaders proficient in engineering and technology is at the top of the nation’s agenda. While encouraging all young people to pursue careers in related fields is critical, this initiative has even greater significance among the nation’s young women. Approximately 10 percent of American engineers today are women and the number of women entering colleges of engineering is declining.

The “Wow! That’s Engineering!®” event honors the achievements of women and girls as they develop and discover the future through technology with events around the country which take place throughout the year. The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is proud to announce Puerto Rico is still one stop on the national “Wow! That’s Engineering!®” tour.

This year the Puerto Rico event took place at the Mayagüez Campus of the University of Puerto Rico last March 24, 2012. Here you can see images from the event and download our WOW! Special Edition Newsletter.
