VIDEO: Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day - February 21, 2013

The fantastic video below, produced by Eweek.com, discusses the 12th Annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day event and why it is so important to empower female youth with knowledge about opportunities within the engineering profession. The piece features highlights of previous years and an inspiring overview of Girl Day activities.

This year's Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Sally Ride, the first woman in space.  Dr. Ride was an early participant in Girl Day and an inspiration for girls and women around the world.  Her work continues through Sally Ride Science.

Although the national event takes place today in Washington, DC, Eweek.com wants you to know that there are ways you can start your own "Introduce a Girl to Engineering" movement within your community or company using these idea starters:

Idea Starters 
- Do hands-on activities with a Girl Scout troop.
- Talk to a class of high school girls about engineering careers.
- Invite a group of girls to your company or lab for a tour.
- Set up a job shadow programming for middle and high school girls.
- Host an engineering event at your office, local museum or school.
- Look at what other groups have done in the Girl Day archives.
