High School Engineering Colloquium

Every semester we hold a High School Engineering Colloquium to introduce more girls to engineering! At HSEC, we introduce high school students to the various branches of engineering and offer our insights into fields that they might otherwise not consider studying.

Upcoming Events

We plan to hold another in-person High School Engineering Colloquium in the Spring of 2023. We will update this page with more information when registration opens!

Past Events

Fall 2022 HSEC

This semester, the SWE High School Engineering Colloquium returned in person on Princeton’s campus led by Isha Sinha and Vivian Chen! Students from local high schools were invited to spend the day at Princeton and hear from Dean Bogucki and distinguished professors, talk to current students about their majors and extracurriculars, build a hands-on catapult, and get a tour of Princeton’s Engineering Quadrangle. Thank you to everyone who attended – we can’t wait for another great event in the spring!

Fall 2020 HSEC

Thank you to all of our excellent High School Engineering Colloquium scholars who submitted their results for the egg drop challenge and congratulations to our two winners:
1. Yaquelyn Rivera who had the highest successful drop at 20 feet using a box-like design with straws to absorb the shock of the impact.
2. Elizabeth Mundkowsky who had the most creative design which was a cage with crunchy paper padding. This design also survived a 15 foot drop.
