AAUW hosts Engineering Girls event Saturday [UPDATED]Published 9:15am Thursday, February 21, 2013 Updated 11:17am Thursday, February 21, 2013
For the third year, the American Association of University Women-Fergus Falls branch is hosting an event to introduce area fifth- and sixth-grade girls to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
This year, AAUW is holding Engineer Girl Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Kennedy Secondary School cafeteria.
The girls will meet women engineers and make their own Rube Goldberg-type machines.
The goal is to perform a simple task through a series of chain reactions with contraptions engineered by the girls.
The event is free but space is limited to 20 participants, so it’s important to register early.
