TransportationYOU participates in e-Girls Event at BSU
Sarah Ringling and Karissa Hardy, TransportationYOU Committee and WTS SW Idaho Members, recently participated in the e-Girls event on June 7 and 8 targeted at high school female students. This event demonstrates the importance of women in engineering and technical careers. The students participated in a workshop on building and strength-testing foam bridges. The bridge needed to support weight and a raw egg was placed under the bridge. The goal was for the bridge to be strong enough it would not collapse when weighted and crush the egg. One team figured out a loop-hole the workshop leaders had not anticipated and used deflection in their favor to create another support and save the egg!
