An Introduction to Engineering…No Boys Allowed!

“They filled out the application, we crossed our fingers and waited,”  Karoline Sharp reflects on the excitement of a BIG opportunity for some of her female students.  It all started when she received an interesting email from Argonne National Laboratory.  They were hosting a special day dedicated to girls that might be interested in engineering.  Karoline Sharp immediately thought of three female students who show a great appreciation and talent for STEM.  She encouraged them to apply.  And the wait began…

Well, the news is in! All three girls have received a letter of acceptance!  Sharp is incredibly excited for her students.  They are all very anxious for the day to arrive!

The program offers female students a unique opportunity.  Participants will enjoy motivational speakers, engage in hands-on engineering experiments, and participate in team challenges.  “These girls SO enjoy science.  I’m sure they are as psyched as I am,”  Sharp adds.  The big day is Thursday, February 26th.  Can’t wait to hear more about it!
