High School Conference 


High School Conference is an annual conference hosted by the Society of Women Engineers chapter at Texas A&M University. The conference is a two-day long event, where high school juniors and seniors will be exposed to various engineering-oriented group activities that will give them a feel of what an engineering major looks like. The participants will also take part in several Texas A&M traditions and be taken on-campus tours and class visits to get to know our university and its culture. Join us at the High School Conference at Texas A&M University and see what engineering at Aggieland is all about!

HSC 2020

Join us for HSC 2020! The theme of this year’s conference is STEM WARS: The Engineer Awakens based on the all-time favorite STAR Wars film series. Through this conference, students will have the opportunity to explore engineering and get a taste of college life at Texas A&M. 

Students will participate in innovative design challenges, take classroom and lab tours, attend a college fair with various departments in the College of Engineering, interact with current A&M students, and learn all about Texas A&M's amazing traditions. A select number of students will even have the opportunity to stay on campus with current students for a unique chance to experience A&M from a current student’s perspective.

This year, the conference will be held on January 24-25, 2020 at Texas A&M University, College Station, TX. Registration OPENS on November 4, 2019, CLOSES on December 6, 2019, and will cost $50. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. 

We look forward to seeing y’all there! May the Force be with you!

Marissa Talavera

Howdy! My name is Marissa Talavera, and I am a junior mechanical engineering major from Plano, Texas. But most importantly, I am the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2021! A-A-A Whoop!

I am so delighted that I get to plan HSC 2020 with two amazing co-chairs this year. I am looking forward to putting on an interesting and engaging conference that will give a small glimpse of what college is all about. I have always been passionate about STEM outreach and retention, and I am ready to encourage high school students to pursue a career in STEM. Apart from participating in organizations and studying, I enjoy dancing, watching movies, and baking cookies with my friends. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have about HSC 2020 or SWE in general!

Isabela Ferrer

Howdy! My name is Isabela Ferrer and I am a sophomore Chemical Engineering major from Sugar Land, Texas, but most importantly I am the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2022, A-A-A-A-A! 

I can’t wait to be a co-chair for High School Conference this year and help create a memorable experience for the attendees. I am passionate about sharing my interest in engineering with younger students and I am excited to see how our activities will provide the students with insight into the Aggie Engineering experience. Last year I was a member of SWElites, and I found such a supportive, welcoming environment within the program that I am so happy to continue my involvement this year.

Outside of SWE I love to read, listen to music, watch musicals, and try new restaurants with my friends. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about HSC 2020, Thanks and Gig’em! 

Gabriela Ramos

Howdy! My name is Gabriela Ramos, and I am a senior Biological and Agricultural Engineering major from San Antonio, Texas, but most importantly I am the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2020! A-Whoop!! 

I am honored and excited to serve as one of the SWE High School Conference Co-Chairs for this year. The SWE High School Conference is a great opportunity for high school students to not only be involved in fun engineering challenges but to also experience college classes, network with engineering departments and to explore different paths in engineering they can take at Texas A&M. I love encouraging students to pursue STEM by planning exciting design challenges and offering panels and tours to answer any of your questions. As a highly motivated person, I love learning new things whether it be through my bioaerosol research or by meeting and talking with new people. Outside of SWE and when I’m not studying, I enjoy practicing my photography, playing soccer, spending time with my friends and family, and taking long walks outside on a good day. I look forward to seeing you at our 2020 High School Conference and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks and Gig’em!
