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 an event where high school juniors & 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!

Howdy! My name is Kayla Waswil and I am a junior majoring in Mechanical Engineering from Katy, TX. My time in SWE started my sophomore year when I volunteered as a counselor for the High School Conference. From there I knew I needed to get more involved in such an incredible organization and so I volunteered for STEMFest and participated in the FLAME program. I am beyond excited to serve as one of the High School Conference Co-Chairs this year and continue my journey with SWE! In my free time I enjoy going to concerts, hiking, exploring new places and spending time with friends. I cannot wait for this upcoming year!
Howdy! My name is Ainsley Shields and I am a Sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering from Austin, TX. I began my involvement in SWE my Freshmen year as a member of SWElites and the HSC Design Committee. The second semester of my Freshmen year, I served as a Professional Development Co-Chair for SWE. I am honored to be one of this year‘s HSC Co-Chairs and look forward to hosting the best HSC yet! When I’m not studying, I enjoy playing Minecraft, plotting world domination, and building legos.
Howdy! My name is Emily DeGraaff, and I am a sophomore mechanical engineering major from Temple, Texas. I started my involvement in SWE last year through the High School Conference Committee and the Outreach program. This year, I will serve as a High School Conference Co-Chair with my amazing co-chairs Ainsley and Kayla, and I cannot wait to prepare an awesome conference for future engineers. In my free time, I love doing various art, listening or playing music, and spending time with my human and furry friends. I am super excited for this year!
