MarTREC hosted thirty-five fifth and sixth grade girls in July at our new GirlTREC summer camp. The camp focused on hands-on activities related to transportation engineering from roads to rail to waterways and was designed to build courage and interest towards studying STEM fields and considering a career in the transportation industry.
Several engineering students volunteered during spring break to help others "Dream BIG." These College of Engineering students led a hands-on water filter project for the 40 girls, who participated through the Volunteer Action Center's Alternative Spring Break. The participants were teenage girls from the Marvel-Elaine school district.
