Girls Engineering Day
Inviting WTS-OC Members to Volunteer for Girls' Engineering Day 2022!
Are you interested in inspiring and guiding the future leaders of the Transportation Industry? Then we could use your help for Girls’ Engineering Day (GED) 2022 on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at Dale Junior High School in Anaheim. WTS Orange County, in partnership with Anaheim Union High School District, will be hosting up to 100 middle and high school girls for this event, introducing them to various aspects of the transportation industry and STEM via hands-on activities. To sign-up to volunteer, please Click Here.
The outpouring of support from the communities served by the Anaheim Union High School District and the feedback from both students and teachers who participate in GED year after year has been incredible. We are thrilled to be able to provide our students with an in-person event again this year.
Our program exemplifies the mission of Transportation YOU and WTS International. This is a wonderful opportunity for professionals in transportation, structures, surveying, geotechnical, environmental, and traffic to introduce young girls to the world of engineering, math, and science! Together we can make a difference in cultivating the next generation of emerging leaders.
Please note: Event participation requires full vaccination and masks on at all times.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact our GED Volunteer Coordinator, Kelsie Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
