Come learn about environmental engineering during Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. “Girl Day,” which falls during Engineers Week each year, is a worldwide campaign to introduce girls to the fascinating world of engineering. Thousands of people — engineers, teachers and others — act as role models and educate girls about how engineers change our world. This simple act has encouraged many girls to pursue engineering and technology careers.

Tata & Howard will be hosting an introduction to environmental engineering and water tank building activity for local girls and Girl Scouts as part of Girl Day. Tata & Howard’s female engineers will provide the girls with a brief introduction and Q&A session, after which participants will be broken into groups. Each group will be provided with a plastic cup along with a limited amount of popsicle sticks, drinking straws, rubber bands, chewing gum, adhesive bandages, paper clips, string, and push pins. The goal is to construct an elevated water tank that will hold a full cup of water for 15 seconds.
