This gallery from the recent “Introduce a Girl to Engineering” event at the Siemens West Chicago plant shows girls learning about STEM.
Siemens hosted more than 130 girls in grades 5-12 and their parents at the Siemens West Chicago plant on Friday, March 13 for the 11th annual “Introduce a Girl to Engineering,” an evening where young women conduct design experiments, tour the factory and learn about careers in STEM and the manufacturing industry.
During “Introduce a Girl,” participants were challenged to design and build a structure using dry spaghetti and marshmallows; construct a wind turbine from index cards, paper clips and a cork; and fly a paper airplane across the factory floor. All girls were entered into a drawing at the end of the evening and several went home with new iPads and books about engineering. Click here to learn more about Introduce a Girl to Engineering.
