  1. In 2006 I visited the S.T.E.P.S. program which is a summer camp for girls to get them excited about engineering and science. At the time they were building a radio control sailplane as a manufacturing process.

    I created the following video about the program that has since been changed to center around the construction of a radio control boat.
