On Tuesday, October 18th, eighth grade girls participated in the Young Women In Engineering Workshop at the Claremont Community Center. 

These hands-on workshops were led by female engineers, architects, scientists and specialists. Topics included computer animation, mechanical and structural engineering, plasma cutting, marine engineering and bioengineering. The students were able to build, create and assemble models of important engineering systems we see each day. 

Only 14% of engineers in the United States are women; by increasing their exposure to this creative and diverse career, we hope to spark a light of inspiration for our girls!
