The Eastern Nebraska Professional Section

The Eastern Nebraska Professional Section meets monthly throughout the year in addition to publishing a quarterly newsletter. Meeting topics include professional development, work-life balance, networking, and technical presentations, as well as social gatherings and volunteering.

The Section sponsors one or two Girl Scout events each year, introducing them to the different engineering fields. At each event these girls, ages 9 - 15, perform hands-on activities such as making a polymer, building a bridge, building circuits, and many other exciting activities.

In 2007, the Section launched the first Wow! That’s Engineering event. Wow! That’s Engineering! creates an experience for middle and high school girls where they have the opportunity to meet female engineers and technical professionals and hear first-hand about these exciting career paths. Women engineers present interactive activities and the girls experience the creativity and innovation that goes on in the field of engineering. Visit our Wow! That's Engineering webpage to learn about future Wow! That’s Engineering events.
