On February 20, 2014 NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences introduced girls ages 12-18 to the world of engineering during National Engineering Week events at the Manhattan and Old Westbury campuses.

In Manhattan, students listened to keynote speaker, meteorologist of Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems sector, Kremena Darmenova share how students can enter the meteorology profession. In addition, students got the opportunity to showcase their engineering projects to faculty members and students.

At-NYIT-Old Westbury, 50 local girls participated in programming, engineering, and robotics workshops, and got the opportunity to fly drones through obstacle courses. The keynote speaker, NYIT alumna and Cisco Services Client Solutions Manager Laurie Cantileno, discussed building self-esteem and achieving successful and fulfilling careers.
