Some of the women of ADC joined other members of ASHRAE’s San Jose Chapter and spent their Presidents’ Day encouraging the next generation during GIRLS DAY @ THE TECH. Girls Day provided hands-on activities for girls age 7-14, along with their families, and highlights the achievements of women in STEM fields. In addition to exploring interactive exhibits about robotics, cyber security, wearable tech and bioengineering, guests participated in workshops and maker activities infused with art, music, game design, computer programming and more.
Two of our engineers, Hannah and Valerie, volunteered for the event. They helped teach children about pressure drops by having the kids blow bubbles through a straight straw, a long straw, and a bent straw, and talking about how that applies to air conditioning systems. The activity was a hit with the girls. It was so popular we even had one repeat customer do the activity again! We look forward to seeing the girls who attended the event continue to thrive in the areas of STEM.
