Inspire a girl’s future by introducing her to the exciting world of engineering at Nebraska Innovation Campus.

*Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your session time to allow time to check-in.
*There will be a separate parent session on engineering for girls and how to support your daughter’s interest in engineering during the session times. There will also be tours of the Innovation Studio Maker space for parents. You can sign up for these tours during check-in.
*Linked here (https://innovate.unl.edu/parking-nic) is information about parking. Make special note of where to enter the lot (at 19th and Transformation Drive), this is much earlier than you’d expect if it’s your first time here! We will be in the Conference Center.
*We will not be providing any refreshments, but there are water fountains throughout the building, and The Mill’s wonderful NIC location will also be open.
*In the event you must bring younger children, we will have a separate area for parents and children to utilize at their discretion during the film and while the older youth are in their age appropriate sessions. This separate area will not be staffed, but Lincoln Children’s Museum will provide Keva Planks and Lincoln City Libraries will provide books about engineering.
