Participants included a record-breaking 619 middle school girls, plus 300 of their parents/guardians and middle school educators. More than 200 SWE members volunteered at the event to facilitate the activities, act as role models, and work closely with the middle school girls throughout the day. Thirty-two exhibitors provided information about camps, competitions and resources as part of the Invent It. Build It. EXPO. Concord Evaluation Group was hired to conduct an independent evaluation of the event. This report summarizes the evaluation findings.
