On Friday April 19, high school girls, in groups of less than 10, will meet faculty, create a project and learn about careers that are nontraditional for women such as welding, mechatronics, automotive and drafting.

This intimate event will give girls a welcoming introduction to a technical education path at Sierra College.  They will see labs, use tools, build projects, meet female college students and learn about careers. The event is designed to connect with girls and inspire their career plans.
