Middle School Girls Sample "Hard Hat" Life at Construction Camp
Brown, Aneeta
Tech Directions, v72 n6 p13-16 Jan 2013
On a Monday morning in July, a fan as tall as a refrigerator churned noisily in the cavernous classroom. As the outdoor temperature crept higher, teenage girls wearing hardhats and safety glasses wiped perspiration and sawdust from their faces. This was not a field trip. This was the second hour of camp at Ranken Technical College in St. Louis, MO. Camps like this are a great way to get girls interested in technical fields, so the author in this article shares the experience of the girls and the instructors who worked with them.
