    Style Engineers, formally known as Smart Clothing, Smart Girls, is a youth engagement program which weaves STEM concepts with the field of fashion design. Participants in the Style Engineers program experience STEM as a thriving component of apparel – especially functional clothes! Professors, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers at both Cornell University and the University of Minnesota lead girls through five modules: The Engineering Design Process, Movement Improvement, Marvelous Materials, Smart Clothing, and Patternmaking Tools n’ Tech. The students participate in hands-on laboratory and design activities. Students apply what they learned in the modules to a final culminating project. They are challenged to integrate science and fashion into a final prototype garment. The program culminates in a fashion show where teams showcase their prototypes and present on how they integrated fashion and science!
