New Location

Standard

We regret that our original location did not work out for a variety of reasons.

However, we have found a new location to host our Design Your World – STEM Conference for Girls.

601 Accent Drive

Plano, TX 75075

 

Arriving at Legacy Prep

TXDoT has announced road closures in the area. US 75, both northbound and southbound will have all lanes closed from Renner to 15th street. The Plano Parkway bridge over 75 will also be closed. Please allow for extra time, as traffic will be heavier than usual on the side roads in the area around the school.

Parking is conveniently located in front of the school and to the south of the building (toward River of Glory). Please do not park near the restaurant.

Once you have arrived on campus, please make your way to the registration table to get the room assignments for your activities.

Volunteer Registration is Now Open!

Dallas SWE is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization: we need YOUR help to make the Design Your World STEM Conference a success! Step up and inspire students to foster their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics!

We need volunteers to prepare materials before the day of the event, process registration, run activities with the students and adults, and help guide attendees to where they need to be! A big part of this event is interacting with students as engineers and as role models. If you want to help make Design Your World happen, click below to register as a volunteer for our next event, scheduled for November 11, 2017 at UTD!

As we transition to a new fiscal year, check out the successes of FY17 below and stay tuned right here and to our email distributions for information about upcoming DYW event news! Thanks for your support, and have a great summer!
