ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Locals could celebrate the nationally recognized “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day” by visiting the Rochester Museum and Science Center.
The day was created by the National Society of Professional Engineers to inspire girls’ future so they have a place in engineering. The day is celebrated on Thursday, February 20 during National Engineer Week.
Locally, young and eager potential scientists and engineers could celebrate the day in STEM and explore the exhibits of the RMSC.
“We’re building that confidence and that skill set that they’re going to use,” Director of Audience Engagement and Education Allison Schultes said.
“They’re that next generation of scientists. They might not be engineers now, but they might be the engineers of tomorrow. They might have the knowledge and the power to solve some of the dilemmas that our world is still facing.”
The museum also held Animal Week over winter break introducing visitors to new animals and animal behaviors.
