Outreach & Community Service

Our current outreach efforts have reached over 700 students in the Rolla, St. James, and Licking Missouri Communities. This semester we plan to extend our reach even farther. Our hope with our programming is to interest students at a younger age when math and science can be the most frustrating and discouraging subjects.


Rolla Middle School

Our chapter participated in STEM days at the middle school, teaching the students about science, technology, engineering, and math. We were also able to tell them about our experiences at S&T, and get them excited about an engineering degree!


Fall SWE Lock-In

Our chapter holds our annual Lock-In, hosting high school girls at Missouri S&T.


Newburg Elementary School

This past year, our chapter of SWE was able to secure 500 STEM kits for fifth graders. They were able to design, build, test, and take home their creations.


Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED)

This event is aimed towards 5th to 8th graders with the purpose of introducing more girls towards the idea of engineering. The event was a success with visitors from St. Louis dropping by. We were happy to host the next generation of innovative thinkers and tinkers.


Kaleidescope Center

The Kaleidescope Center is a local STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) outreach center in Rolla, MO. Some of our membership is able to volunteer with them and assist in exposing local students and children to various STEAM concepts and ideas.
