Davenport — Area girls in grades pre-school through seventh grade are invited to learn more about engineering and physical sciences at St. Ambrose University. A free event will be held in two identical sessions Feb. 19. The first will be held from 3-5:30 p.m. and the second from 5:30-8 p.m. in the Rogalski Center ballroom.
The sessions include hands-on activities and demonstrations that introduce girls and their guests to the fun and exciting world of engineering and science. Last year’s event was filled early, so registration is a must. Register for only one session. Girls are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing. Some walking will be involved. Check-in begins a half-hour before the event.
Arconic Foundation, Cobham, John Deere, MidAmerican Energy, PowerGrafx, Stanley Consultants and Society for Women in Engineering sponsor the event.
