Fifty-six Stone Middle School Future Female Engineers participated in the Society of Women Engineers workshop, WOW! That’s Engineering!, at Bayside High School on Saturday, October 9, 2010.
These girls experienced the creativity and innovation of engineering and technology. They met women engineers and technologists and heard first-hand about these exciting careers.
They participated in hands on projects about design engineering, electronics, chemical and manufacturing engineering, nanotechnology, cryogenic fluids, mechanical and industrial engineering, robotics, thermopolymers, crime scene investigating, and structural design engineering.
The girls spent the day creating, designing, learning, and having fun by constructing desserts, recreating prototypes, making cosmetics, building and launching catapults, programming robots, lifting fingerprints, taking apart and looking inside small electrical appliances, and many other exciting activities.
It was a FANTASTIC day for all!!!
