Event description

Description

UT-Austin's annual, award-winning Girl Day, presented by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP), welcomes over 8,000 elementary and middle school students, parents and educators for an action-packed afternoon of hands-on engineering fun! It's a total blast for girls of all ages (and boys too) thanks to the engaging science, technology, engineering & math (STEM) activities hosted by over 150 organizations and over 1,300 students, faculty and engineers who make it happen. Of course, with all those people converging at UT, it's hard to find a parking spot....

PARK & RIDE INSTEAD! Capital Metro, the Cockrell School of Engineering at UT-Austin, and the Girl Scouts of Central Texas invite you to park for free at Ruiz Branch Library and ride free to UT with a Transit Day pass -- so you can spend more time with math & science heroes and less time circling campus for parking.
