As a second year civil and environmental engineering major, I see so much value and importance in introducing young girls to STEM programs. I have spent a few Saturday mornings working with one of my other organizations, the Society of Women Engineers or SWE to bring STEM knowledge and innovation skills to local Girl Scout troops. The programs have varied in content, but one thing has remained constant, the girls are absolutely captivated by STEM, and you can see the gears turning as they think about what science and engineering really are.
