Lehigh University's CHOICES program allows middle school girls to participate in a variety of fun engineering and science experiments designed to foster an interest in the future pursuit of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The event is sponsored by Lehigh's P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science along with our chapter of the Society of Women Engineers, with support from partner organizations including Bosch Rexroth, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Air Products and Chemicals and Boeing.
