The 19th annual Girl Day 2020 was held Feb. 22 at the University of Texas at Austin. Hosted by the university’s Women in Engineering Program at the Cockrell School of Engineering, the event aims to spark creativity and inspire future careers in STEM fields. The free, day-long event gave more than 12,000 elementary and middle school students a friendly environment to explore dozens of science, technology, engineering and math activities.

Rosendin Electric and JE Dunn volunteers gave students a hands-on learning opportunity in electrical work. The firms hosted a Ready to Light Up the World – DIY Lamp Creation activity to teach students basic electrical skills on wiring a lamp safely. Students learned how to assemble plumbing supplies, strip wire and create custom metal table lamps to take home using kits donated by Lonestar Electric Supply, MTech and Elliot Electric.

Attendees also had a chance to speak with Rosendin employees about women in construction and career opportunities, ranging from installing conduit to computer modeling and virtual reality.

Students used an app to navigate dozens of learning activities offered by more than 170 companies, research centers, community organizations and student groups on the college campus.

During Women in Construction Week, members of the Gilbane Houston team took to the road and visited the Tomball ISD 2017 Bond Program jobsite, which features a new elementary school, junior high school, district stadium and water treatment plant. After touring the jobsite, the group enjoyed lunch together and discussed what empowers them as women in the construction industry.
