My Daughter is an Engineer program was funded by a grant at CSULB.
Statistics show that only about 20 percent of engineering students are women, and that women make up only about 10 percent of professional engineers. Three women in the College of Engineering at Cal State Long Beach are trying to change that, and four schools here are benefiting from their efforts.
More than 260 students and their coaches are expected to attend the orientation workshop on how to participate in the first annual Long Beach Solar Grand Prix announced 5th District Councilmember Gerrie Schipske.
Schipske and her 5th District Solar and Sustainability Task Force are sponsoring the Solar Grand Prix on April 10, 2010 which provides students, grades 6-12, a chance to design and build a solar-powered model car and then complete a race in the shortest possible time using the available solar power.
