Ever make something that no one else has? Have a great idea that might save the world or at least 5mins from homework time? In our visit to Inventionaland, you can see the creative officespace where people design and build prototypes of inventions. Come see some inventions, visit some creative offices, watch a video about how an inventor's idea reaches the store shelves, brainstorm some invention ideas, and talk to some female STEM mentors from different fields.
Tour Your Future is a career exploration program that connects girls ages 11-16 with Pittsburgh-area institutions and gives them an opportunity to meet female professionals who work in those organizations. The program shows girls that they can find a place in science by introducing them to diverse STEM careers, from avian zoologists to accountants, software engineers to surgeons.
