In 2006, Natalie Dang, left, a senior at Kerr High School, and Lisa Felberg, a Bellaire High School senior, collaborate on a Lego robot at GRADE Camp, a weeklong summer day camp at the University of Houston. The program is designed to encourage girls to pursue careers in engineering.
Young engineers at MESET 2006 evaluate their rollercoaster design by sending a marble “car” down the track. MESET is a
two-week residential camp with participants who include those traditionally under-represented in engineering. Pictured from left to right are Ansley Alexander, William Manashi, Marnesar Javier and Dorothy Le.
