In previous columns, we introduced some amazing women in engineering who strive to empower girls through mentoring. But how do those girls feel about such preengineering training? How did they change after participating in such engineering activities? Now we would like to introduce four girls who had such experiences, and you will find details of their experiences. While three of the girls are still in high school, they plan to become engineers and mentor other girls and boys interested in the engineering field. One of them has entered college as a computer science major and is mentoring a local FIRST robotics team. It is a very good sign that our young generation of women engineers is willing to play a bigger role in engineering education. From the other side, the encouragement and support of their mentors is really valuable in the professional lives of these young ladies.
