I am reaching out to you on behalf on UT Society of Women Engineers about our yearly outreach event called Tomorrow'sEngineers Today. This is an event where we bring in high school and middle school aged girls and encourage them to pursue STEM fields. This year's event will be on Saturday April 1st. Typically we do a lot of fun science experiments with the girls, and we will be repeating that this year. In addition to experiments, we will be doing demonstrations of some of the cool things we have at UT. We will be showing off MABEline (our MABE department's really realistic synthetic cadaver), a flow loop that we have in the Nuclear Engineering department, a Scanning Electron Microscope, and more. I think this would be a very valuable experience for your students. I would appreciate it a lot if you spread the word to the students or parents and encourage them to register. Registration ends on March 19th, so we are trying to get the word out this week before several schools go on Spring break. I have attached a flyer with more information on the event as well as the link to registration. Please feel free to distribute it to students and parents.

Thank you!
