Join us Saturday, May 13th 2017 for UAB's 7th annual Girls in Science and Engineering Day!

Girls in Science and Engineering Day (GSED), is a day for local middle school girls
(6th-8th grade) to come to UAB and participate in fun science and engineering activities
led by women who are professors, scientists, and students from UAB and our surrounding
community. All girls will participate in three different exciting workshops throughout the day.

Registration will open in March. Please check back for more details.

Girls in Science and Engineering Day was created in 2011 as a unique event designed to inspire and empower Birmingham-area middle school girls to achieve and excel in science and engineering fields. The event was founded by UAB students Alison Barnard, DPT (class of 2012) and Farah Khan, MD (class of 2013), two friends who believe that all girls can be successful in science, math, engineering, or any subjects they desire to pursue!
The current leadership team includes Kelsey Patterson (UAB MSTP), Ramsha Farrukh (UAB Neuroscience undergraduate), and Rachel Thompson (Civil Engineering, School of Engineering). Dr. Sisiopiku serves as the event director. Outreach efforts are coordinated by Dr. Yildirim. To discuss or make your philanthropic commitment to GSED, please contact Victoria Allen, Director of Development for the School of Engineering, or Lori E. Green, Director of Development for the School of Education.
