Designing bridges, building towers, purifying water and making bath salts. Sixteen young women recently attended the Girls in Engineering Summer STEAM Camp at Cleveland State and completed these projects and more. Sponsored by Nokian Tyres, the camp explored a different field of engineering each day — chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical and environmental. 

Female engineers from area industries were guest speakers and discussed their education paths and job responsibilities. Volunteers from the Society of Women Engineers and the Million Women Mentors hosted each day and guided the projects.

Although the summer STEAM camps are coming to a close, the 2023 Summer STEAM Camp schedule will be available in March 2023. For more information, visit mycs.cc/STEAM.
