Abstract

WISE Investments (WI) is an National Science Foundation-funded program designed to encourage more females in middle, high school, and community college to pursue engineering and related careers. A major component of the program are two, two-week summer workshops which introduced middle, high school, and community college teachers and guidance counselors to engineering. These teachers are then charged with integrating what they learn in the workshop into their classrooms. The counselors are charged with incorporating engineering information in their career counseling and developing and implementing an outreach program to encourage students to consider engineering.
