This Interactive Qualifying Project deals with the creation of a workshop that stimulates the interests of adolescent females in engineering and technology fields. Background information needed to properly evaluate the statistical, social and psychological issues of female involvement in mathematics and science, as well as information on creating an effective workshop, are documented. Project development is described and a final curriculum is included. Activities included in the workshop are the creation of an anemometer and radiometer.
