The University of Utah, College of Engineering is pleased to offer our Annual Hi – GEAR Program, a special week-long event for female high school students grades 10-12.
Hi-GEAR is designed to expose young women to a variety of engineering and computer science careers with hands-on experiential learning and collaborative team projects. Some past activities include: building trebuchets for launching water balloons, making perfume using distillation, programming and racing robots, extracting DNA, and touring University research labs. Participants interact with Hi-GEAR mentors (female college engineering students, female faculty and staff) who guide them through this program.
Participants will also have the opportunity to earn scholarships to study engineering as a college student at the University of Utah!
