Bourns Engineering Day (VOLUNTEER!!)

Please volunteer! Bourns College of Engineering Day Website

The Society of Women Engineers at UC Riverside annually hosts Bourns Engineering Day, an entertaining event featuring hands-on fun and activities. We invite all of UCR including the faculty and staff, the local community, and Girl Scouts to participate in this wonderful opportunity. Girl and Boy Scouts are eligible to earn an event patch at the end of the day's activities.

The importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in our everyday lives is becoming more evident. Every year is a new theme.
In the past, we have included subjects such as Nanotechnology, Sustainability, and Space, as well as the various engineering disciplines that UCR has to offer. This year's theme will be Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.

We will be featuring a variety of activities to explore these fields for Elementary and Middle School aged participants.
Our event is made possible through our co-sponsors including Exxon Mobile, Northrop Grumman, the Riverside Astronomical Society, the Bourns Foundation, the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council, the Society of Women Engineers, and the Associated Students of UCR.
