Four members of the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences traveled to South Africa to continue to forge a stronger international science and engineering connection as educators at the FIRST Avenue Girls Winter Camp in July, help at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa.
The institute aims to stimulate interest in STEM fields among economically disadvantaged girls by developing a pipeline of young people interested in STEM careers will help the country tackle challenges associated with power generation, water supply, transportation infrastructure and other issues.
