Day 5: Thursday



We are fortunate enough to have one of our teachers who worked with NASA on the engineering and construction of the Endeavor Space Shuttle. Her husband (who also worked on the shuttle) is now a docent for the California Science Museum in Los Angeles. We were given private tours and insider information on what went on in the construction of the space shuttle and got to see it first hand! It was incredible!

Then, the JCs put on a little entertainment for us with some songs-it was great! All the girls started singing and it was so wonderful to see them all caught up in the moment- I got chills, it was beautiful.

Afterward, we had the honor of speaking with 6 different professional women in the field of STEM. We had a Disney Imagineer, Executive Producer for Awestruck on YouTube, Microbiologist, Director of Clinical Operations on Eye Devices, Business Consultant, and a Senior Aquarist. They were all fascinating and extremely informative! What an inspiration.

The rest of our evening has been spent working on writing thank you letters to the branches that sent them here for this experience. Now it’s light’s out and let me tell you- that is one time of the day that ALL of us look forward to- everyone of the girls crash after such fun-filled days. Tomorrow will be another great day and we are so excited to share our week with you come this Saturday. I can’t believe the week is already almost over- it just flew by!

We’ll see you soon!

P.S. Once again, apologies for so few pictures-you will have more on the DVD you receive at your branch meeting in the fall. But at least you can see what we’ve been up to. I’m sorry if your daughter was not captured in these pictures- they are unedited and not sifted through– we save that for the final product on the DVD. Thank you for your understanding.
