“Heaven for an Engineer,”
That’s how sixth grader Shkenca Demiri described the Everyday Engineering Summer Camp at Rochester Institute of Technology this past week.
Demiri is one of 40 girls from the fifth and sixth grades who participated in the camp, which is directed by Jodi Carville. Carville said the goal of the camp is to educate girls on the opportunities that women have in the engineering field. The camp staffers hope to nurture the girls’ interest in engineering.
