Program Goals & Objectives To encourage girls ages 12-15 to consider careers in engineering and technology , and take the appropriate " gate-keeper" math and science courses in high school. Offer girls the opportunity to work on real world problems through interactive, collaborative, and team-based environments. Introduce girls to a wide variety of engineering and technology based activities and related careers. Encourage mentoring partnerships between girls and female role models active in the computer science, engineering and technology community. Spark an interest in engineering through design projects developed by the girls, based upon needs relevant to their lives and experience. Help girls have fun while developing skills and interests that will help them determine career paths. Encourage girls' participation in local or regional science fairs in the engineering category.
