Ladies in the Lab

 Ladies in the Lab is an interactive showcase for women in STEM. We want to reach out to girls in middle school and high school to excite them about the possibilities of studying and working in a STEM field. In the past, we have hosted around 70 girls from local middle and high schools. Companies like NASA and clubs like the Society of Women Engineers, Engineering Student Council, the 3-D printing club, and the Biomedical Engineering Society have set up tables with activities for the girls in past years. The activities usually consist of a short project such as DNA extraction or a demonstration of an engineering gadget like a 3D printer or sun telescope. Additionally, there are numerous new coding activities.
