Picture Yourself as an Engineer!

Each year the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. hosts an Engineering Career Day for Young Women at the company's Goodyear Hall facility.

Young women in grades 6 through 12 are invited to attend this event on Saturday, April 19, 2008 in Akron, Ohio.

This 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.

Other engineering disciplines will also be discussed, including polymer, materials, biomedical, chemical, mechanical, electrical, environmental, and aeronautical. There will also be a special session on Preparing for College for students and Financial Aid for parents. Middle school and high school students will follow separate tracks geared specifically for their age group.

Encourage students to come and enjoy this fun and informative event, as did the young women who attended last year:

"This was very informative and fun!! If offered next year, I will definitely come back." "It was an awesome experience and I now know what my future dream job is!"
The day will conclude with one young woman winning the chance for a ride on the Goodyear blimp.

This FREE event runs 8:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., is open to the public and includes lunch. Participants must register at The registration deadline is April 5, but space is limited, so register early.

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