More than 100 middle-school girls assembled this week at Rowan University in New Jersey for Attracting Women into Engineering, a three-day program that allows them to learn about engineering. The participants make model bridges and bottle rockets. "I find it inspiring to come back every year and see more and more girls in the program," said Sarah Bauer, a civil engineer and former participant in the program. "We still need more woman engineers, but this program is evidence that the numbers are starting to shift."
