The Women in Engineering Program held its inaugural DREAM Conference (Developing Revolutionary Engineers and Mentors) on Saturday, February 16. More than 350 students, parents and teachers packed into the Adele H. Stamp Student Union to learn about opportunities in engineering at the Clark School. Participants engaged in activities including workshops, games, task tests and panels with faculty, current students and professional engineers.

Each Clark School department hosted workshops and tables at the information fair. Engineering student services and several engineering student organizations were also present at the information fair.

BAE Systems, Land and Armaments Division, a Terabyte sponsor for the conference, provided the Luncheon Keynote Speaker, Bonnie Kee-Bowling, who spoke about how engineering has impacted her life. Gigabyte sponsors Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin also provided speakers for the professional panel discussions.

"More than 50 students, professionals, staff and speakers volunteered their time to make this conference a success," said Alana Johnson, WIE coordinator. "We would like to thank them for their passion and energy throughout the day."
