Society of Women Engineers Hosted a Day of Engineering Event for Middle School Girls

UMass Dartmouth Chapter of Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosted a Day of Engineering event for local middle school girls during April vacation week 2010. The girls took apart everyday products including toasters, juicers, and hand mixers and learned how those products functioned. Professors Holtta-Otto, Payton and Chalivendra as well as student members of SWE, led by Noemi Chiriac, helped in explaining the role of each part in the product as well as the engineering involved in designing the products.
