Alief ISD Ladies Learn about STEM Careers

What a great Manufacturing Day on October 7th! Approximately 65 Alief ISD female students participated in the National Association of Manufacturer’s Step Forward event at the University of Houston.

Alief students had the opportunity to tour the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering Trailblazer, a one-of-a-kind science museum-on-wheels. Demonstrations included hands-on exhibits that taught students about energy, space, weather, biotechnology, and aerodynamics.

Students also took part in hands-on activities sponsored by various University of Houston engineering clubs and gained valuable knowledge of STEM careers related to the field of engineering.

A big thank-you to all of the BASF employees who helped with the event!
