Femineer Club

McPherson Magnet School's STEM Lab

History of the CPP CoE Femineer Program

The Femineer Program was created and funded by Cal Poly Pomona's College of Engineering in 2013 to inspire and empower females to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors and careers. The 3-year program consists of curriculum in Creative Robotics, Wearable Technology, and Pi Robotics. McPherson is proud to be one of 40 participating schools with a Femineer cohort in SoCal. The program provides hands-on activities that allow students to think creatively and to work collaboratively.

Engineers in Training

McPherson's first Femineer cohort attended the Femineer Summit recently at Cal Poly Pomona to present their finished projects. Starting in January, girls met weekly after school and used the Design Process to construct and program a Creative Robotics project using recycled materials, Hummingbird Duo controllers, and Scratch programming. Mrs. Andrade and Mrs. Hoffmann are proud to nurture their inquisitive minds.
