Engineering workshops offered for girls

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois and the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Northern Illinois University will offer 12 Saturday engineering workshops and summer camp for girls in grades 6 through 8.

Girls will work in small groups on engineering projects, including building simple electrical circuits, bridge building, chemical engineering and lean simulation. The girls will be assisted by NIU female faculty, engineering undergraduates and high school mentors.

Girls can apply for the program by completing an application form from www.girlscoutsni.org/stem.html and submitting a copy of their last quarter’s report card with a sealed letter of recommendation from a math, science or technology teacher. Applications must be received by Monday. NIU will notify applicants of acceptance the week of Oct. 15.

Girl Scouts accepted into the program will pay a $150 fee; girls who are not registered as Girl Scouts will pay a $162 fee, which includes Scout registration. The program fee includes all workshops, summer camp and optional bus transportation to NIU’s Naperville campus.
