Girl Day Planning Guides

Grade A

That’s how two-thirds of girls graded the Girl Day event they attended. When we asked how to make a Girl Day event even better they said to do MORE hands-on, engineering activities (and don’t be afraid to make some of them a bit more challenging). They also liked learning new things, eating good snacks, working in teams, and meeting engineers.  

We’ve got more tips and resources to help you earn an A+ from all of the girls who attend your Girl Day celebrations.  We’ve organized them into three groups:

1. Educators

We’ve got ideas and tips on how you can spark girls’ interest in engineering in classrooms, afterschool programs, and other group settings.

2. Engineers

As a role model, you can inspire a girl’s future by sharing with her what engineering is all about.

3. Parents

Parents are a child’s first role model. Explore the ways you can excite your daughter (or son) by introducing them to engineering.

Wait there's more!

We’ve also got a Girls Night Out Planning Guide. This event features Dream Big film, engineering activities, and presentations.
