Gender equity and inclusion in Engineering at Penn State
Penn State’s School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Program’s Engineering Design (DESIGN) now has ENGR 497: Design Thinking and Resiliency. The course provides female engineering students with experiential learning opportunities designed to help them succeed and lead during their engineering education and beyond.
It starts with a a challenge course backpacking in North Carolina. Prior to the trip, students were required to read Brene Brown’s book “Braving the Wilderness” and Tom and David Kelley’s “Creative Confidence.” The trip presented students with physical and mental obstacles to overcome by working as a team and implementing engineering problem-solving skills.
Upon returning from the trip, the students spent most of the fall semester designing, prototyping and finalizing their projects. On Nov. 18, a gallery was held at Happy Valley LaunchBox for students to present their projects to their partners and event guests.Chavanic, S. (2020).
