Femineers Got a Glimpse of College

On Wednesday, 40 Femineers took a trip to Cal Poly Pomona for the annual Femineer Summit. Femineers is a club for girls that takes place after school and was started by the Cal Poly Pomona College of Engineering to help get females more access to STEM-type careers. Dwyer is in its second year hosting this program.

This year, Femineers studied Wearable Technology and each pair learned how to program LED lights to flash, blink, and chase on a piece of clothing. The girls learned soldering and circuitry to make this happen. They are led by Mrs. French and Mrs. Mannarelli, who are both great role models in science and engineering. Next year's club with focus on building with mini-computer boards called Raspberry Pi.
