Meet Victoria Ibarra. She attended her first “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day” at The University of Texas at Austin when she was 10 years old. That experience set her on the path to becoming an engineer. Now she is a Girl Day volunteer and hopes she can bring out the engineer in girls attending this year.

When LaTisha was a girl, she didn’t have any engineering role models that looked like her. She is on a mission to change that. Watch LaTisha and the group of young girls she works with at the Ivy Youth and Family Center.

When Sarah was in 8th grade she went to her first “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day” event at Rockwell Collins. That was one of first her engineering experiences. Now an intern at Rockwell, she is studying engineering at Iowa State University and stepping up to be a role model to young girls.
