Society of Women Engineers at ASU members

Members of the Society of Women Engineers at ASU.

The Society of Women Engineers at ASU is trying to start an online tutoring initiative to help students during all of the school closures.

SWE will have four different programs you can help with.

  1. Making short videos with an activity or an experiment for kids to follow along with at home.
  2. A curated list of resources for parents to utilize during the shutdown (this one is more behind the scenes if this is something you enjoy).
  3.  A virtual tutoring program where we tutor students virtually.
  4. A buddy system to increase social interaction for kids during this time because they are experiencing isolation as well.

SWE created an entirely new Slack workspace for the entire initiative because we have students from other schools, other SWE sections and other Fulton Student Organizations joining this program!
