Earlier this month, the University of Houston’s Society of Women Engineers hosted its 4th annual “Launch Into Engineering” event, inviting hundreds of local high school students to learn about engineering disciplines in a dynamic campus environment.

The event was hosted in the University’s Recreational Center and included hands-on activities designed to provide students with new perspectives on engineering and other STEM fields. Christina Dillon, a mechanical engineering senior and recently-crowned Miss Austin pageant queen, spoke to the group about her passion for engineering and her personal experiences at the Cullen College. She also touched on her participation in Project TEAMMATE, an outreach project that aims to address gender and ethnic diversity in technical fields by bringing engineering directly to students.
