On Saturday, August 19, 2017, ASCE LA YMF hosted 350 members of the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles for a fun day at the California Science Center and to see the Dream Big 3D IMAX movie! The day began with a bang with hands-on engineering activities between 12 groups of girl scouts and their lead female engineer. The 12 groups built bridges, buildings and pipelines and some held up and some didn’t when loaded with additional marbles! After the hands-on engineering activities, the girl scouts lined up to see the Dream Big 3D IMAX movie, and took advantage of some more photo-ops and selfies! The movie is visually stimulating and successfully displays the human-side of engineering. After viewing the film, many of the girl scouts were very excited about the possibility of engineering for their future careers! The groups broke for lunch, and then after lunch, the female engineers lead their groups of girl scouts throughout the California Science Center’s museum exhibits and ended the day with the Endeavor Shuttle Exhibit! The day was so much fun and successful, that the ASCE LA YMF and the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles cannot wait to join again for another event! Girl Scouts Dream Big Day was a great day for inspiring future generations of female engineers!
