On Friday, Dec. 6, Lockheed Martin in Bothell hosted 24 young women onsite as part of its annual Women in Engineering Day event.
The sophomores and juniors from three schools in the Northshore School District were selected to attend for their demonstrated interest in math and science.
During Women in Engineering Day, Lockheed Martin introduced its guests to the exciting opportunities the field of engineering has to offer and showed them how they can translate their interests in math and science into advanced technology careers. The young women toured Lockheed Martin’s facility, met with a panel of successful women engineers and had lunch with the local senior leadership team.
Additionally, the students competed in the spaghetti marshmallow tower challenge, during which teams had 18 minutes to build the largest tower that could hold a marshmallow using one yard of tape, one yard of string and 20 pieces of spaghetti.
Lockheed Martin is committed to advancing science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.
