Ready Set Design

Mission Statement:

The Ready Set Design program provides introductory engineering experiences for middle school girls in the Baltimore area, through half-day weekend programs on the Johns Hopkins University campus. The program is organized by the Johns Hopkins student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

In each session the girls will first learn about the engineering design process and about the theme of that session's activities. Then, the students will split into groups to work on the group design projects. Each group will design a device to perform a specific task related to the theme of the session. Creativity is encouraged - every idea is worth exploring!

Girls will also have the opportunity to interact with Johns Hopkins engineering students, as well as to meet local women who have found success and fulfillment in exciting engineering careers. Volunteers are asked to serve 1 hour every other week and 10 hours additionally in the semester. Fall events will be held on October 24th and November 20th from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
