The Invent Girls is an intensive year-long program that introduces high-school-aged girls to fundamental and essential skills used by professional engineers worldwide. The participants develop skills in the areas of research, engineering principles and processes, teamwork strategies, and presenting technical information.
In the Fall, participants focus on learning about teamwork, coding languages, 3D design and printing, hardware assembly, programming, and soldering. In the Spring, they build and customize an Arduino-based project by incorporating and expanding on the skills they learned in the fall. The year closes with a Student Expo, where participants present their projects to their families, peers, and STEM professionals. In 2022-2023 we served 16 participants with our Invent Girls program.
