for industry, the press, and our sponsors

breaking the stigmas and stereotypes of women in engineering

We are seeking sponsors to provide the team members with a stipend for their
endeavors, to underwrite the cost of computer equipment and modeling software
necessary to perform the research and development of the car, and to cover the
travel expenses for the road trip, including those of support personnel. The team
members will be forsaking summer positions and engineering internships that
have become essential for securing a position after graduation. We want their
involvement in the "Nerd Girls" project to be an equivalent experience to the
real open-ended engineering problems one would encounter in an industrial position.
Please help us! For more info,
