“Catch the Engineering Bug” is an annual outreach event hosted by the

SWE Texas Tech section. Our mission is to inspire middle school girls from all over West Texas to one day pursue a degree in the STEM field.

The girls spend a Saturday at Texas Tech University learning about engineering through lectures, demonstrations, and hands on activities led by SWE members, professors, and students from other engineering organizations.

This year, our event took place on Saturday November 11th, and we had almost 400 girls from all over West Texas come to our biggest event ever!
