STEM Connect-KC Calendar
Transportation YOU Tower to the Moon Virtual Event
October 21 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This virtual event for girls will begin with Vicki Johnson, who worked for Spirit Airlines in Wichita, Kansas, for much of her career, sharing about her professional history and how she overcame adversity being a woman in a male-dominated field. After hearing about her career and aerospace engineering, participants will split up into breakout groups for the hands-on activity, exploring different methods to construct a stable structure out of limited materials. Each breakout group will include a female professional mentor to walk through the activities and different ideas on how to build a tall and sturdy structure.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 7 so materials can be sent to each participant in advance. The Zoom link to participate will be provided once registration closes.
