“Parent-Daughter Engineering Day” is designed to spark the interest of 40 middle-school age girls and get them thinking like engineers.
The parents and daughters engage in activities such as building a hydraulic crane and team-building exercises.
The organizers of the event hope it will inspire confidence in and nurture the girls’ engineering abilities by having them interact with successful female engineers, WSU faculty, staff and students.
The event is sponsored by the Office of Career and Technical Education through federal funding from the Carl D. Perkins Act of 2006.
