Girls can be engineers too!

DAVENPORT, IOWA - Almost 600 girls are proving engineering isn't just for boys. 
 
Grade school girls from more than 100 schools met at St. Ambrose University to participate in the, "Introduce a girl to engineering program."
 
The girls learned about engineering using hands-on activities. 
 
" We got to make roller coasters and test ping pong balls and marbles and wooden balls and then when we shot it down, it goes into a loop and we try to make it into a cup, and if we did make it into the cup we would test other things," Brianna Haneyscott said. 
 
This was the programs sixth year.
