to video chat with their pups and automatically deliver a dog treat from afar. This amazing contraption was invented by the
inspiring Spokane 9th grader, Brooke Martin. Martin actually pitched the concept at a Startup Weekend event in

Celebrate Girl Day with AAUW: Enter Our Battle of the Plans! (AAUW)
12/5/2013 - Engineering is one of the fastest-growing fields in the United States, so why are only 13 percent of
professional engineers women? One reason is that not many girls learn about engineering in the K–12 classroom.
That’s why DiscoverE (formerly known as Engineers Week) created Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, now called Girl Day.
To help celebrate, AAUW is inviting teachers and other educators with K–12 experience to submit lesson plans for our
second annual Battle of the Plans contest.
