WE@RIT hosts “WE Build” Program, for Girls in Grades 4-5

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

WE@RIT introduces engineering concepts to girls in grades 4-5, in a fun way, with the WE Build Program. Participants will build a miniature dog house according to a customer’s (toy dog) needs and specifications, while learning basic teamwork, creativity, and design.

WE Build is a one-day program where participants complete a design and build project in a fun, creative, and hands-on way. Participant experience includes:  mentoring by RIT engineer students, exploring RIT campus, and taking home a personalized design project. The miniature dog house design project is personalized based on provided criteria and participant choices. Participants will also learn about alternative energy sources, be given a set of customer criteria, budget guidelines, house materials, and “money” to purchase their energy and insulation choices.


Registration includes: a full day experience in a classroom setting, mentoring by RIT students (2 to 1 ratio), lunch at the RIT Student Dining Hall, and a personalized constructed dog house with toy dog.
