engineering logoOn Tuesday, Feb. 23, the Engineering and Physical Science Department will host its fourth annual "Introduce a Girl to Engineering" carnival of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities for girls. The initial event brought in nearly 200 participants and ignited an excitement in not only the young girls who participated, but also in parents, teachers and SAU faculty. Since then, interest in the event has "exploded," with more than 500 girls participating this year—and more than one hundred on the waitlist.

"The excitement and enthusiasm of everyone involved is just downright infectious," she added. But why the emphasis on STEM ... and why keep the event just for girls? Stay tuned.
