One Step Ahead

One Step Ahead brings female high school students from the GAINS program (Girls Achieving in Non-Traditional Subjects) to campus to learn about the different engineering disciplines and participate in hands-on engineering activities. Coordinated by the SCU student chapter of The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), undergraduate students introduce engineering to the high school students, effectively demonstrating electrical, computer, mechanical, and civil engineering concepts through fun experiments such as a tsunami simulation, programming exercises, a lesson in how gears work, and through the use of a bridge construction simulation program.
