Find out about WE@RIT's first ever Women in Engineering's Open House!May 5, 2016
On November 7, 2015 WE@RIT attempted something brave and new: opening the doors of Kate Gleason College of Engineering (KGCOE) to girls in grades 5-9, their parents and their educators. No registration fees and no RSVP’s meant little idea of what to expect for WE@RIT, but the event proved wildly successful with roughly 550 people attending. Billed as a “buffet of engineering,” the idea was the brainchild of Program Director Kathy Ehrlich-Scheffer, carried out with support from the WE@RIT Advisory Board. Click here for a Q&A with Kathy.

Hot Wheelz, the all-female team of engineering students, part of RIT’s Women in Engineering program, won the e-dragster event in 2012 and will be returning with a strong team and a new car. Electric Roar, built by staff of Information and Technology Services, is one of the original racing teams dating back to the first Imagine festival in 2008, when RIT President Bill Destler proposed the challenge to showcase alternative energy vehicles.
