UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA AT BIRMINGHAM (UAB)

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) hosts a Girls in Science and Engineering Day (GSED) program that inspires middle school girls to consider careers and fields of study in science and engineering, thereby helping to eliminate gender disparity in science, technology, engineering, and math career paths. The event connects female role models from UAB and the Birmingham community with participants through group hands-on activities. The small group structure creates a positive collaborative working environment to improve girls’ confidence in STEM. The annual Kids in Engineering Day is hosted by the UAB chapter of the Society of Women Engineers for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students with an interest in STEM. UAB is also developing a STEM program focused on engineering in autonomous transportation systems for students 7th through 10th grade.
