a Girl Thing"
HEY GIRLS! Are you interested
in an elective designed especially for you? If so, read
you like to design and invent things? Do you like to

solar cars, robotics, structures, magnetic levitation, electricity,
computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing? Or
do you just simply like to have fun? If your answer
is YES, this might be the elective for you!
It's A Girl Thing!" is a program designed to strengthen
knowledge and skills of Technology/Engineering (an integral
part of the Science & Technology/Engineering Curriculum Frameworks

will use the design process to research problems, design solutions,
build prototypes, test solutions, and finally present their
project to others. Students will have a chance to work
on individual assignments and in small groups. Also,
there will be an opportunity for field trips to businesses
and industries that focus on high tech and engineering fields.
are a few examples of what's to come:
a robotic arm to lift an object and place it in a container
and build a structure out of spaghetti that will support
the most weight
a motorized Mag Lev vehicle that will go the fastest
the most efficient house, from selecting a lot to the color
of the paint
a company logo for your engineering firm
the most efficient way to make a sandwich (you get to eat
puzzles, play games, go on field trips
there you have it. Does it sound interesting? If
