This year at our annual Girls in STEM Conference, the day kicked off with an engineering challenge. Girls learned a little about the Chilean Miner incident and were tasked with creating a prototype for a safe and sturdy piece of equipment to efficiently rescue a miner.
Volunteers at Stitch Fix helped assemble over 650 kits for each girl to use in her challenge. Kits included supplies such as pipe cleaners, toothpicks, rubber bands, spoons, and more. We are so thankful for their help in making this a fun and educational challenge for girls.
