Project Discovery 2010

Thursday, July 15, 2010

More than 30 high school girls gathered the week of July 12-16 at the School of Engineering for Project Discovery 2010.  It provides the girls with a chance to experience  problem-solving approaches that engineers use every day. Campers focus on one of six engineering disciplines and complete a project under the direction of a KU faculty and doctoral students.   Here's a look at the groups and some of their work.
