Niskayuna students explore the science behind hot air balloons, test the effectiveness of sunscreen, learn about the impact of CO2 in our atmosphere and use forced air to create inflatable sculptures during the week of July 11 through the Engineering Institute for Young Women at Niskayuna High School.

The 38 campers, entering grades 7-9, had the opportunity to participate in a variety of hands-on projects with a different focus each day. The week-long experience blends the "STEAM" disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math.

Students spent their final day learning from leading scientists and researchers at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, a partner in the week-long experience.

The Engineering Institute for Young Women seeks to expose female students to the possibilities of study and work in engineering and related fields, while raising awareness about the incredible impact these fields have on our world.
