April 28, 2015 was GIRLS ONLY Engineering Day at the Northglenn STEM High School. The goal of GO Engineering Day is to provide opportunities for our female students to learn about different fields in engineering, to meet and talk with professional engineers and engineering students, to learn about local engineering schools, and to participate in activities to develop skills involved in different engineering fields. It was an amazing event that was run completely by women, for women.
Elizabeth led an interactive workshop in the school’s computer lab on Energy Modeling: How We Help People Build More Energy Efficiency Buildings. In less than an hour, the students had built their own energy model using eQuest software and were acting as energy consultants, analyzing a variety of energy efficiency measures for their project.
