The Science and Technology Wing (STWing, pronounced /stwɪŋ/, like "string") is a collection of several hundred undergraduates, graduate students, professors, and alumni at the University of Pennsylvania. Our members share a strong interest in the science and technology which permeates our everyday lives, not to mention a sense of humor.
STWing currently occupies the second floor of King's Court, and is well on its way to taking over the world. Members have access to many resources, including our computing services on Force, the STWing lounge, a room-converted-to-lounge equipped especially for STWing, and the Blimp Room, a workspace on the ground floor of King's Court managed by STWing.
What do we do?
As a floor, STWing organizes a ton of events for its members and the rest of KCECH. Everyday, it's easy to find STWings studying in the elevator lobby or playing games in the STWing lounge. Every few weeks, STWing hosts a dinner discussion with some of Penn's leading professors and policymakers. Every month or so, STWingers make expeditions out to karaoke, Chinatown, and restaurants for Restaurant Week (look it up if you're not from around!). In addition to these regular activities, STWing also organizes some annual events, including the Rube Goldberg competition and the STWing Robotics Fair. To cap it all off, we host a STWing Banquet at the end of the year, to which all STWing students and alumni are invited.
STWing is governed by itself through Continuum and the Bylaws. This body helps to organize all of the activities that STWing is involved in. Elections occur at the beginning of each spring semester and carry for a full calendar year.
