New camp introduces high school students to engineering
It’s never too early to start exploring new interests, especially in STEM fields. That’s why faculty in mechanical and aerospace engineering have begun a one-day camp for high school students.
Engineering, Columbia STEM Alliance, CPS host STEMette camp
According to recent data from the National Science Foundation, women make up half of the total college-educated workforce nationally, but they account for just 29 percent of the workforce in science and engineering. One way of attempting to end this disparity involves getting girls interested in STEM fields at an early age, and Mizzou Engineering and the Columbia STEM Alliance recently hosted a camp as part of an effort to do just that.
