Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona presents Imagine Engineering 2013: Get in on the fun
Contributed by Veronica Ohl
Hey Girl Scouts! Do you like to watch CSI, help animals or experiment with new things? Have you ever thought about building a robot? Going to space? Designing something that can help people all over the world? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then you should be at Imagine Engineering at the Northwest Campus of Pima Community College on March 16. At Imagine Engineering, we will be learning all about the world of science, engineering, technology and math (STEM).
There is no better time than now to learn how you can impact the world and start building a future full of cool opportunities and career options. Some of the fields that we will be learning about are veterinary science, bio-medical engineering, forensics, aerospace engineering and robotics. If you’re in 4th through 8th grade, you can attend this day of fun with hands-on activities and chances to meet women who actually study or get paid to do this stuff!
I spoke with troop leader Treshia Middleton of Junior troop 902, and she said that she is excited for “new opportunities and interests for her daughter and her girls that they may not normally get.” Her daughter Sarah is especially excited for forensics and feels prepared since she watches a lot of crime shows! Treshia and Sarah are excited for more STEM events and would recommend them to girls all over Southern Arizona.
Need more convincing?
The buzz from the girls of troop 118 led by Adrianna Medina is full of excitement and curiosity. Adrianna’s daughter Jasmine is most excited to learn about “chemicals and fluids. I want to see how they mix and react. I’m cialis cheapest also excited to learn more about mining.” Jasmine has
been to four STEM programs and says, “they are awesome.” Her Girl Scout sister Izabel Bymer said, “I’m interested in solar power. We live in Tucson after all!” Izabel has solar panels installed near her home and thinks that solar energy should be a big part of our lives. Troop leader Adrianna says she loves “to watch the girls grow and gain useful knowledge for their lives.”
Any girl can find something they can excel at with STEM. Imagine Engineering will not only be fun but will show you that all Girl Scouts can change the world, no matter what your skills or passion might be. We hope to see you there!
