What we do
We are a group of faculty at Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering with an interest in gender and engineering education. Our activities include:
- A Gender and Engineering discussion group for Olin College students
- Talks, workshops, and panel discussions for students, educators, and professionals
- Research on the intersection of gender and the engineering student experience
- Development of activities and materials that can be used by educators at other institutions
- Community outreach
Gender and Engineering Education Kit
We are currently working to develop a Gender and Engineering Education Kit (GEEK) to be used by others as a guide in running discussion groups and workshops on gender and engineering.
Our research focuses on the engineering student experience, with a special emphasis on gender. Starting in the summer of 2013, we will be hosting undergraduate engineering students and high school teachers on the Olin campus for summer research in engineering education as part of an NSF REU. A list of publications is here. Information about other work can be found here, here, and here.
