SWE's SUCCESS!!: Introducing Girls To Engineering Workshop
We had such a great turnout today! An estimated 650 young girls attended engineering workshops run by willing and dedicated members/volunteers of the Spacecoast's Society of Women Engineers chapter. I was one of the leaders for the Bottle Rockets Workshop. I explained Newton's Three Law's of Motion and helped them launch their own bottle rocket. The girls had a blast! We have 5 session workshops throughout the day for the Bottle Rockets, and I have to say that I enjoyed every single one of them. There were so many other engineering workshops that they attended (e.g. Robot Designs, Electrical Circuits, Bridges, Fun with Solar Energy, etc....) but I know that by the end of the day they all gained a little extra knowledge and had fun with hands-on applications.
