Hi Madison,

How you get there depends a lot upon where you are now.  If you are in middle school then this would be a great time to start looking into engineering clubs and after-school and summer programs.  Make sure you take a full range of college prep courses in high school and start looking into colleges that offer a chemical engineering degree.  You can also check out the "How to Get There" section of EngineerGirl to get some ideas and pointers.  Enjoy the journey!
