Introducing Girls to Engineering at Exploration Place

On February 26, 2011, Exploration Place, in partnership with the Wichita State University Engineering Education Department and the local chapter of the Society of Women Engineers, hosted the SciGals Science and Engineering day – a full day of science and engineering activities and career presentations specifically for girls ages 10-14.  More than 290 girls participated a variety of exciting hands-on activities, including experimenting with roller coasters, circuits and wind turbines. Other activities included nanotechnology demonstrations, fossil identification, and memory challenge activities. SciGals attendees also learned about science and engineering careers from female STEM professionals representing Wichita State University, the National Institute for Aviation Research, and Sedgwick County Crime Lab.

The Super SciGals program is offered monthly at Exploration Place.  Visit the Super SciGals program page for information on future offerings!
