Join us Saturday, April 12th for UAB’s 4th annual Girls in Science and Engineering Day!


Girls in Science and Engineering Day (or GSED for short), is a day for local middle school girls (6th-8th grade) to come to UAB and participate in fun science and engineering activities led by women who are professors, scientists, and students from UAB and our surrounding community. All girls will participate in three different exciting workshops throughout the day.

  • GSED is free for all participants!
  • Lunch is provided between workshops.
  • All girls will receive a 2014 GSED t-shirt.

Girls in Science and Engineering Day was created in 2011 as a unique event designed to inspire and empower Birmingham-area middle school girls to achieve and excel in science and engineering subjects/fields. The event was founded by UAB students Alison Barnard, DPT (class of 2012) and Farah Khan, MD (class of 2013), two friends who believe that all girls can be successful in science, math, engineering, or any subjects they want! The current event director is Kelsey Patterson (UAB MSTP). Dr. Melanie Shores from the School of Education serves as a faculty advisor for GSED.
