Everett High School students participated in an exciting and innovative program hosted by the organization Advancing Women in Transportation (WTS-Boston) aimed at getting girls interested in the transportation sector and STEM subjects.
The 2019 Transportation YOU Boston Summit was organized by WTS, MassDOT, and the MBTA, and hosted by the Harvard University Science Center on Saturday, Oct. 26.
The event, open to girls ages 8-18, offers hands-on workshops to introduce participants to a wide variety of transportation careers. There will also be an ice cream social, opening and closing remarks by industry professionals, and mini-activity tables between workshops.
Transportation YOU is a hands-on, interactive, mentoring program that offers young girls ages 13-18 an introduction to a wide variety of transportation careers. Through the program, WTS chapters work to make a difference in the lives of young girls by offering programs and activities that will spark their interest in all modes of transportation and encourage them to take courses in math, science, and technology, which are the stepping stones to exciting careers that can change the face of the transportation industry.
