Pomona, Ca – More than 600 female K-12 students in the Cal Poly Pomona Femineer Program showcased the engineering and robotics projects they have spent weeks building and coding alongside their teachers and other femineers. Projects included a knight and dragon; a girl with a beating heart that pulsed with light; miniature spinning tea cup rides; a Ferris wheel activated at a ticket booth; a small BB-8 droid; wearable technology in the form of light up designs on hats, ties, backpacks and t-shirts; and Raspberry Pi cars travelling a course with cameras. The Femineer Program was founded in 2013 in the College of Engineering to inspire women and girls to pursue STEM in their education and career choices. The program is now active in 84 schools in 4 states.
