Girl Scout Exploration Day

Girl Scout Day brings 25 to 35 middle school students to campus to meet UMass Engineering undergraduates, participate in hands-on activities, and learn more about engineering. In 2013, for example, Girl Scouts will learn about renewable energy and engineering by designing, building, redesigning, and testing solar cars. The overall objectives of Girl Scouts Day are: to broaden young girls' views about engineering; to show engineering is fun; to introduce role models pursuing careers in engineering; and to introduce engineering as a potential career.
