WTS Central PA Celebrates Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

February 28, 2019 06:27 AM

Last month, as part of Engineers Week and to specifically celebrate Girls Day/Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, a number of WTS Central PA volunteers visited local schools to read a book from our Transporting Minds Book Donation Program (http://www.wtsinternational.org/centralpenns​ylvania/transportating-minds-one-book-at-a-time-program/). The students really enjoyed the reading time and having the chance to talk to a transportation professional. Some of our volunteers took time to answer questions, others even led hands-on STEM activities.

This was a great opportunity for WTS Central PA to give back to the community, as volunteers were able to read at a school of their choosing and donate the book afterwards to the school’s library or classroom. Many went above and beyond, donating multiple titles to the school.
