For a few days this summer, a group of girls went to GADgET Camp to learn about manufacturing. The Girls Adventuring in Design Engineering and Technology Camp focuses on girls between the ages of 12 and 16 and is the only all-girls camp that is is funded by national organizationNuts, Bolts and Thingamajigs. Antigone Sharris, an engineering instructor at Triton College started the program. Can't wait to see what these girls make.
