I don’t know if I said the specific reason I’ve been gone for a week. I went up to Michigan Tech University for a summer program called Women in Engineering. What an experience it was!
Does anyone else wait as long as possible to sort through trip pictures? Because it’s one of the worst things ever for me. I have so many pictures to share. About halfway through the week I ran out of space on my memory card so I did have to go a little less crazy!
Arrive at camp. Meet roommate. Orientation. Play ice breakers to get to know everyone.
^^^ my roommate Clara!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Start engineering explorations and focus projects. We had 9 explorations throughout the week that exposed us to all the different areas of engineering (chemical, mechanical, environmental, electrical, biemedical,etc). We made a ton of cool little things!
I really liked the campus at MTU. It’s not huge and you can walk everywhere, but it’s not so small you can see it all from one spot. Plus they have some awesome running trails!
Picnic at McLain State Park
Monday night all 150 girls went to the park for a cookout (food will be a different post!!) Lake Superior is beautiful!
Wednesday night we all went to the lake to release lanterns. I was just in awe of how breathtaking the water was!
When it was finally dark enough we sent off the lanterns.
That was a fun night. Well worth the late bedtime!
On Thursday a few girls went out and hiked at Hungarian Falls!
I made a lifetime of new friends. There were so many incredible girls there!
I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to experience a few aspects of engineering, right at college. It might be my future? 🙂
