On Saturday, March 30, the hallways and classrooms in the UH Cullen College of Engineering buzzed with excitement as a thousand Houston- area girls attended the fourth annual “Girls Engineering the Future Day: A STEM Event,” sponsored by Chevron.

The event introduces girls in grades four through eight to the wide world of STEM and engineering activities organized by faculty and student organizations from UH Engineering.

Girls played with prosthetic hands, built electrical circuits with students from the UH Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and made paper airplanes/launch rockets with American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Other activities and workshops included an egg drop station, jewelry-making robot station, to name a few.

Chevron volunteers also provided an interactive activity station called the “STEM Zone” aimed at sparking interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

TAME, the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering, was also on hand with its interactive STEM museum- on- wheels.
