The 3rd Annual Girls Engineer It Day was held at Woodville Tompkins Tech and Career High School.
The local chapter of the Society of Women Engineers hosted the event to encourage students to get involved in engineering. Organizers honored the achievement of women and girls as they discovered the future through technology. Students in grades 6-12 participated in hands-on projects with local engineers, in order to challenge them to be creative and promote teamwork. Although both genders were allowed and encouraged to attend the event, "Engineer It Day" is aimed at girls and women.
