Central Florida SWE
The Central Florida Section of the Society of Women Engineers is a section of the National organization serving Central Florida. The primary purpose of SWE is to help girls and women become aware of the opportunities available to them in engineering and engineering-related careers. SWE also supports the efforts of women engineers and informs the public of their accomplishments.

SciGirls training was carried out on May 3, 2014 and was taught by certified SciGirls trainer, Sara Kobilka. The training was outstanding and attendees were taught how to better communicate and engage girls in the STEM outreach activities. The training was well received by everyone and CFL SWE looks forward to incorporate lessons learned for more effective STEM workshops as well as including some of the SciGirls activities in a future SWE-SciGirls STEM outreach workshop. Thank you everyone for coming!
