I started working for MakerGirl a nonprofit organization based in Champaign, Illinois, this year as a senior majoring in Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois. MakerGirl’s vision is to inspire young girls to pursue careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). The organization hosts workshops that teach girls ages 7-10 about various topics, basic modeling software, and 3D printing technology.
