Girls will test and get feedback on their prototypes and continue to develop them and create an informal pitch to present at our final meeting in May.
We will have an interactive conversation with women working in different disciplines of engineering (i.e. mechanical, electrical, civil) and will test your inner engineer with a fun hands-on challenge!
Teams will get a brief introduction to three different technologies and their application: Scratch, Web Development (HTML/CSS), and TinkerCAD. Students will choose the right technology for their project and begin creating a prototype.
We will reflect on topics explored so far this school year and identify an area/problem of interest. Girls will break up into teams and design a tech-based solution to develop and implement over the next 2 meetings for the first Girls in STEM Life Science Tech Challenge!
Additional information coming soon...
Meet Lynn Riemer, a forensic chemist who will talk about her experiences working in a lab and her many years of work as a chemical expert for the North Metro Drug Task Force. You will also get to test your chemistry skills in our own version of a crime lab!
Join us for an interactive panel discussion with professional women from different engineering backgrounds and how this investigative engineering applies to their work across multiple industries; i.e. consumer electronics, consumer product, defense, oil & gas, healthcare, food & beverage, etc.
We had so much fun in August that we scheduled a another night to have some more fun! Please join us for sips & sweets at the Kendra Scott Store in the Park Meadows Mall. We will be hanging out with friends, socializing, having some laughs and trying on some beautiful jewelry! See you there!
