Mid Hudson SWE Scholarship

SWE NEXT Activities

  • We will be working on a SWE Next Event to organize Robotics badge activity for Middle and High School girl scout troops in Hudson Valley. Here is the link to the activity:
  • Our section would like to sponsor a SWENext group in one or more of the local schools. Members will be advisors to the SWENext group and will work with the girls on projects. The volunteers can decide which school they want to work with based on their geographic preference. 
  • If you are interested in helping with either or these projects, please contact Uma Srinivasan at


        Jackie Reynolds is a chemical engineering grad from University of
        Pittsburgh. She worked as a process engineer for Polaroid and then left
        engineering to become a clown. She has been Bee Bee the Clown for      
        almost 23 years and now she has two counting books for kids.  
            – A picture book, Bee Bee’s Circus at the Counting Fair, counts to ten at
              the circus. 
            – An activity book, Bee Bee’s Circus Number Fun, teaches kids to count
              backwards from twenty to one.
        These are great for kids from preschool to the early elementary grades.

  • Maker Faire Events

        Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly
        festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the
        Maker movement. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something
        entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, 
        crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, 
        artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to
        Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have
