Calling all 9th–12th grade girls interested in STEM!

SWE invites any 9th-12th grade girls interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to the world’s largest conference for women engineers—WE21—held this year in Indianapolis, Indiana, from October 21-23! All girls registered for the SWE Girls Program will participate in a hands-on engineering experience with members of the Society of Women Engineers.


SWE is raffling off TWO $1000 scholarships to high school students attending iiBi! You must be present to win.

Attend IIBI at NO COST. Use code “WE21iiBi” when you register!

I’m a 9th–12th grader and I am…

…STEM CURIOUS. I want to learn more about engineering.

Your ideal program: Invent It. Build It. (IIBI) High School Girls Program. Visit engineering exhibits, colleges and companies. Network with women engineers and build with other girls.

…STEM INVOLVED. I do STEM activities and am thinking about a career in engineering.

Invent It. Build It. gives you the opportunity to do the hands-on engineering activities you already love while learning how engineers help people make a difference in the world.

But there’s even more!

Attendees will learn about engineering clubs, camps, after-school programs, and competitions from a wide variety of exhibitors at the Invent it. Build it. EXPO.

The girls participating in the SWE Girls Program and those participating in the PEP program will have the opportunity to explore the EXPO from 9:00 – 11:50 AM. During this time, the EXPO will be an open house, and participants may come and go as they please.

Come to the EXPO to learn about:

  • Careers in engineering and technology
  • Engineering clubs
  • Engineering camps
  • Competitions
  • After-school programs
  • Scholarships

Learn more about the Expo and the participating exhibitors here! Companies from all over will be participating in the EXPO. We have  DiscoverE, Motorola Solutions, Inc., BP, America’s Navy, Central Intelligence Agency, and more!

Invent it. Build It. is For Parents and Educators, Too!

While the girls are having fun building and inventing, parents and educators will learn about engineering careers, scholarships, college admission, and resources.

Thank you to our Sponsors!

Invent it. Build it. is made possible through a generous grant from the ExxonMobil Foundation.
