“I really wish I had gone through a program similar to this one when I was their age,” said An Ho ’15, an MIT student volunteer majoring in mechanical engineering. “I didn’t know what a soldering iron was until I came here for college. To see girls soldering on their own is mind blowing.”
In addition to electric circuits, the girls modeled both chemical reactions and molecular biology processes using LEGO blocks. “We are doing actual chemical reactions, mad scientist style,” said Fitzgerald about the LEGO chemistry lesson.
