On Sunday, November 8th, our CSULB SWE chapter worked with SWE-OC in hosting Girl Scout Engineering Day with more than 60 junior girl scouts attending. The event was held at CSULB, so it was easy to communicate with the event leads and hosts. Four CSULB officers attended the event and helped set up and guide the girl scouts to each designated area.
The girls rotated through various STEM-related workshops led by volunteering professionals and members from other SWE chapters in the region. A highlight of the event was that the girl scouts were able to make and test their very own paper airplanes! This event will earn them their Aerospace badges with the hope that the badges will spark their interest in STEM.
