Help girls invent their futures by sharing the amazing things engineers do and inviting them to participate in fun and engaging engineering activities.
According to DiscoverE, an organization that helps unite, mobilize, and support the engineering and technology volunteer communities, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Girl Day) is an opportunity for volunteers and educators to “help girls imagine themselves making a difference in the world.”
At Girls in STEM Denver, we are committed to create numerous pathways for middle school and high school girls to explore various STEM industries and careers. Because the numbers and facts don’t lie and there is a lot of work to be done, our programs have a strong focus in Engineering. Take for example some of the activities we have organized for this school year:
Throughout the fall semester, our high school girls learned about the bioengineering industry and got an inside peek at a local bioengineering company located in Littleton: 3D Systems Healthcare. Learn more, here.
On March 12, our Campus Middle School members will explore the field of Aerospace Engineering by taking a field trip to a revolutionary company: Boom.
March is also an engineering filled month for our members at DSST College View High School with two fabulous guest speakers:
Courtney Gallo, Production Engineer in the Niobrara field with background in Conventional Light & Viscous Oil Reservoirs on the North Slope of Alaska.
Ale Spray, Marketing and Business Development professional with over 20 years of experience in the Engineering/Construction industry.
Last but not least, on March 28 our Fox Ridge Middle School members will welcome Burns & McDonnell. One of their environmental scientists will explain what consulting engineering is and what a focus on environmental engineering means.
Keep an eye on our blogs and social media channels to learn more about our efforts to inspire girls to explore engineering and technology careers.
