Goodyear is sponsoring the upcoming Engineering Career Day for young women (grades 6 through 12) on April 28th at its Goodyear Hall facility in Akron:

The program focuses not only on engineering but also on careers that can be launched from an engineering background. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities related to multiple engineering fields and will also have the opportunity to interact with professionals from Goodyear, other industrial companies and local universities to learn more about careers in engineering and the sciences. Several engineering disciplines will be discussed, including polymer, biomedical, aerospace, chemical, civil, materials and mechanical.

This FREE event runs 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday April 28 is open to the public and includes lunch. However, girls must pre-register to attend through the website by Friday, April 6th: Career Day Registration

Students may be accompanied by one parent during the day’s activities.
