This day helps us focus a growing movement to inspire girls’ futures, so they learn that they have a place in the engineering world. So take this day as an opportunity to encourage a young female student and introduce them to new a different arena named engineering.
“If you’re an engineer, be a role model and reach out to students.” – Dr. Sandra Magnus.
