"In an effort to make girls more aware of what engineering does to improve the quality of life and to inspire them to become engineers, the LSU student chapters of Engineers Without Borders and Society of Women Engineers collaborated to create an event for fourth to eighth grade Girl Scouts.

The two organizations teamed up with Baton Rouge Girl Scouts to show them a day in the life of an engineer. EWB and SWE prepared an interactive presentation for the Girl Scouts to demonstrate how much water is used in the United States every day and how that compares to the amount of water people use in other countries. They also exhibited how much work goes into cleaning and distributing that water."
