Meet Hope, a Rosie Riveter! 

Rosie Riveters works hard to ignite curiosity in young girls in the subjects of science, technology, math, and engineering. Today, we bring you a special interview with Hope, a participant in our program! She has actually participated in THREE Rosie Riveters programs and a few reunion days! She even volunteered with us to assist with our latest round of K-1st Grade programs. She wants to tell girls that STEM subjects can be challenging, but that's also what makes them fun! 

"I love Rosie Riveters! The sessions sparked my interest in engineering.
Rosie has made learning interactive and fun!"

 

Let's get to know her a little better!

 

RR: Hi Hope! Thanks for letting us interview you! Thank you for being a part of Rosie Riveters! It's so good to see you have such an interest in STEM.

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?

 

 

Hope: An Engineer or an Architect!

 

 

RR: That's so awesome! Very good options!

What does Rosie Riveters mean to you?

 

 

Hope: I love Rosie Riveters because it has sparked my interest in engineering!

Rosie has made learning interactive and fun!

 

 

RR: We love you too! We are so glad you are loving it so far!

What are your favorite subjects in school?

 

 

Hope: Science and Art

 

 

RR: Those are great choices. and some of our favorites too! In fact, Rosie Riveters projects always have an element of art! Maybe that's why we vibe so well!

What is the coolest thing you've ever made?

 

 

Hope: One of the coolest things I've made in Rosie Riveters is a hydraulic desk lamp! The lamp's light moved up and down based on water pressure. In school, for a fifth-grade science project, I recently created a working model of the first car windshield wiper, as designed by Mary Anderson in 1902.

 

 

RR: That's incredible! We love that you love making things and we had fun with those hydraulic lamps! We hope you show us your windshield wiper sometime! What words of encouragement do you have for young girls who are scared to explore science and engineering? 

 

 

Hope: Don't be scared! The STEM subjects can be challenging but they're also fun. The best part is that they require you to be creative in solving problems.

 

 

 

 

We hope you are as inspired as we are by Hope! If you or your kids want to get involved with Rosie Riveters, you can learn more about our programs HERE.

 

 

Or, you can donate to our cause and help us grow! With your donations, we can reach more girls and inspire them to feel empowered in the subjects of science, technology, engineering, and math!
