The students were learning how to use a computer to program a machine to do certain tasks. On Jan. 29, eighth-grade girls in the Baldwinsville School District had the opportunity to explore the career of engineering when Baker High School's technology department hosted a Girls' in Engineering workshop. The workshop, broken into two sessions to accommodate about 30 students per session, was designed to introduce students to engineering courses offered at the high school through the Project Lead the Way program. Students rotated through three hands on activities: digital electronics, computer control systems and computer integrated manufacturing.
