Thanks for a successful Girls Engineer it! Day 2019

On Saturday, September 21, 2019, close to 200 students were taught about engineering and science through 10 different hands-on activities while parents and educators attended a collegiate panel and presentation on STEM interests and educational resources for STEM.† Parents, educators, and students saw local professional, corporate and educational resources in engineering careers and education through 24 exhibitors that presented at the Expo which preceded the classes. This event would not have been a success without our sponsors and amazing support from our teachers and volunteers. Thank you!
