On Feb. 22, Sacred Hearts Academy held the annual Engineering Day where the school invited workers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) industries. The different individuals created activities about engineering to help students understand different aspects of their careers.

One of the activities was an interactive demonstration about architecture. Students used marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti to build the tallest sustainable building.

Since the marshmallow and spaghetti are both unusual materials for building, it is especially hard for using it to build a tall building. With their intellect, students successfully built tall buildings that withstand an unstable base.

For those who attended they were able to walk to different tables and learn about different engineering careers. Engineering Day is created to help students become more knowledgeable about job careers they can enter.

This year was special because engineering was a day before Science Symposium, another event created to introduce students to STEM.

“Last year, our top 10 seniors all choose majors in STEM,” College counselor Randall Fong said. “This definitely proves that girls have a great understanding of engineering.”
