About “Cool Girls in Aerospace”
In January 2016, Mayor Jennifer Gregerson announced her 2016 Action Agenda items including “Cool Girls in Aerospace”, a special summer session offered through Edmonds Community College designed to inspire middle school girls to consider future careers in the aerospace industry. Taking math and science can be cool, especially when you get to experience first hand working in a high-tech lab and learn how to make stuff using the very same materials used to make a Boeing 787 or rocket!
Due to popular demand, we are again bringing back this special learning opportunity for a maximum of 10 girls who will be in middle school this fall or between the ages of 12 -16 to apply to participate. You may apply at any time using our easy online application!. Deadline to apply: June 1, 2018
