We got the opportunity to listen to a lecture about sustainability from two physics graduate assistants at the SIUE Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. After the intriguing lecture, we conducted the experiment that was in the book, The Martian.

I would like to thank Emily Sackett for organizing our 5th annual Career Day. Our students were fortunate to learn from professionals in marketing, advertising, journalism, mental health counseling, law enforcement, and electrical engineering. In addition, we learned from an attorney and a human resources director. Thanks to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to come to our school and educate our students.

At the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day at SIUE, we learned about civil engineering and the role it plays in our world. We applied our knowledge by building structures that could withstand earthquakes. The students made models and tested them on a simulator.
