Manual alum Sophia Mitchell spoke with WISE (Women in Science & Engineering) members about her work at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an Aerospace Engineer in Pasadena, California. Sophia says she spends her days “getting to play” with robots like the Mars Rover.
The 2017 WISE Expo was quite a success! From Ms. Kathy Fries, science teacher and Women In Science & Engineering club sponsor: “Manual WISE girls did an excellent job interacting with the 5th grade girls and facilitating the workshops: math games, Candy Crush (an engineering workshop that allowed the 5th grades to build structures out of gumdrops, marshmallows and toothpicks), chemistry lab (made a polymer from glue and borax similar to silly putty), and science bingo.”
