SWE and Girls Inc. Team Up to Teach STEM to Local Children

NYIT's Old Westbury chapter of Society of Women Engineers has fostered a partnership with Girls Inc. of Long Island to get local girls age 5 - 15 interested in STEM. On February 27th, the two organizations collaborated to hold a workshop on the basics of electricity at the Wyandanch Youth Center. Girls Inc. of Long Island meets there weekly to hold programs intended to encourage interest in the sciences. 

SWE members Michelle Messinger and Rita Sobhy offered the young women of Girls Inc. an exciting workshop to teach the funamental concepts of electricity using lemons. Messinger and Sobhy taught the girls how to use the lemons to create batteries, and the girls then used their batteries to power LED lights and travel alarm clocks. 

Girls Inc. of Long Island  is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering young women to reach their fullest potential by being "strong, smart, and bold." They provide school and community-based programming for young girls in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
