Three Troy Middle School students recently attended, “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day,” at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont.

The students spent the day touring Argonne’s research facilities, engaging in hands-on engineering experiments and competing in a team challenge.

They also heard motivational presentations by female engineers and learned about STEM careers from world-class scientists and engineers.

The students were nominated for the event by their District 30-C Troy Middle School science teachers Barbara Will-Henn, Colleen Fals and Jeremy Huff.

The even twas sponsored by Argonne Education and by Women in Science and Technology.

Troy School District 30-C schools place a priority on the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and math.
