Explore Engineering is a series of immersive engineering design courses for high school sophomore, junior, and senior girls offered by Sweet Briar College's Department of Engineering, Computer Science & Physics. Weekend events are offered in the spring and fall, and a weeklong pre-college, for-credit course is offered in the summer.
Working in teams with Sweet Briar engineering faculty and college students, high schoolers work on creative and fun design projects that are perfect for both experienced students and those completely new to engineering. You’ll learn the design process from brainstorming to testing and revising prototypes, experience problem-solving as an engineer, and make your design a reality! Outside of class, you’ll stay in one of our historic residence halls with engineering student mentors, explore the many amenities of our beautiful campus, and get a taste of life as a college student.
Since 2008, more than 500 students have attended an Explore Engineering event, where they have designed and built such things as:
- Computer-controlled smart wearables
- Automated musical devices
- Sustainable building materials
- Automatically refilling pet bowls
- Electromechanical drawing machines
- Optical bass guitars
