On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2022, a virtual Pre-Regional rally was held for FIRST students planning to attend the San Diego Regional.
It featured an inspiring conversion with Amy Kaur, the co-founder of EngineeringGals, Civil Engineer and model. She discussed the importance of community and being unapologetic in paving our own path.
Watch below video for Amy’s presentation.
Students also had a chance to connect with each other and alumna in small breakout groups so that they had a chance to get to know each other before the upcoming Regional.
To encourage girls to connect with their peers and women engineers in the SWE community, Madalyn Nguyen (FIRST Dean’s List Winner 2020) shared about SWE and the benefits of a SWENext Club.
To add more excitement to the event, there were raffle prizes from UCSD School of Engineering, Maketory, Midway Museum and SWE.
