February 18, 2021 8:30AM to 1:00PM EST

See event details here on Argonne National Lab's page.

Argonne’s ​IGED ​gives ​young ​female ​students ​a ​unique ​opportunity ​to ​discover ​engineering ​careers ​alongside ​world-class ​scientists ​and ​engineers. ​Participants ​will ​enjoy ​motivational ​presentations ​by ​female ​Argonne employees, ​tour ​Argonne’s ​cutting-edge ​research ​facilities, ​connect ​with ​a ​mentor, ​engage ​in ​hands-on ​engineering ​experiments, ​and ​compete ​in ​a ​team ​challenge – all designed specifically for 8th grade girls. While we continue to maintain everyone's safety and wellness, we will be moving the 2021 IGED to a virtual experience. Students will still be paired with mentors. Throughout the day, the students will be encouraged to participate in large and small group activities that provide them opportunities to learn about a number of STEAM careers.
