Rosie Revere Day at the Bellevue Public Library on Saturday, September 23rd was a huge success. Nebraska State Senator Carol Blood read the children’s book Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty to local K-4th Grade Girls, followed by small group activities that encouraged the girls to invent something of their own. E&A employees Teresa Wooten, Mimi True and Ashley Chasek, along with Senator Sue Crawford and women engineers from Leo A Daly, led the small group activities. See more photos of the girls’ inventions here, and a video of the reading below!
E & A Consulting Group, Inc. and Leo A Daly served as sponsors to facilitate the event. Each girl got to take home a hardbound copy of the book (compliments of E&A) and an official workbook (compliments of Leo A Daly) so they might continue to sharpen their STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathmatics) skills.
Rosie Revere, Engineer Reading Day initially started as part of the National Foundation for Women Legislator’s Women’s History Month programming series. Senator Carol Blood is a member of this organization and brought the program to Nebraska, after expanding the event to create a “hands on” learning experience for the attendees with the support and guidance of E & A Consulting Group, Inc. and Leo A Daly.
