It’s almost here! We’re ready to welcome you to Southern Methodist University on November 14, 2015 for our Fall Design Your World – STEM Conference for Girls. But first, some housekeeping items for you all to make sure you join us in the right place and on time!
First, if you bought your tickets months ago and are now unable to join us, please let us know via email or through your Eventbrite email confirmation. Although we cannot offer refunds at this time (t-shirts and activity materials have already been purchased!) your cancellation information will allow us to welcome another student to attend in your place!
Remember, this year ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BRING THEIR OWN SACK LUNCH! This will ensure that everyone gets what they want to eat that day. Box lunches will be provided for adults and volunteers, but we are unable to accommodate any dietary restrictions so if you need a special menu please bring your own lunch as well.
Now, parking logistics. Registration and our opening session, and closing session will be held in Caruth Hall at 3145 Dyer St, Dallas, TX 75205. Some activity sessions will take place in the nearby Embry and Junkins Engineering Buildings. We have secured free parking in a lot just northeast of these buildings (see photo below). There will be signs directing you from the parking lot to check in. Please carpool if you can: this lot is open season on the weekends and we’d really like to have everyone park for free if possible! If we run out of parking in that lot, your backup plan will be to park in one of several paid parking garages on SMU campus: Moody and Binkley are the closest to our DYW buildings, to the southeast along Binkley Ave and Airline Rd.

The great majority of volunteers for this event are engineers, so be sure you and your students interact with them throughout the day. Be sure to like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for live updates during the event! If you take photos, please share them with us on social media or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you next Saturday, November 14! Bring your smiles and enthusiasm for this exciting day of STEM learning and fun!
