Each year during Introduce a Girl to Engineering Week, Heritage and Liberty Middle Schools in Newark, Ohio partner with Boeing in Heath, Ohio to challenge our 7th grade girls to build the strongest but lightest bridge made out of spaghetti. The girls have the opportunity to travel to Boeing for the day where they compete with other area schools. The girls also meet various women in the engineering profession and are able to ask them questions about what they do at Boeing. It is a memorable day for the girls and a few of our girls have become extremely interested in the STEM careers later on in their academic careers. One of our Boeing girls completed an internship at Boeing during her senior year of high school! We are so grateful for the opportunity our girls have to take part in this memorable event. We hope it makes a positive and lasting difference in their lives!
