Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is devoted to teaching girls about the field of engineering, a field traditionally dominated by men. This event aims to address one of the causes of this gender disparity, a lack of familiarity with the field.
For more information, resources, and hands-on activities for K-12 kids, go the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day webpage.
Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, 2013, is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Sally Ride. Dr. Ride was America‘s first woman in space and founder of Sally Ride Science, a company devoted to promoting K-12 science education.
