Host a Mother Daughter Workshop at Your Location

Bring the Mother/Daughter Workshop, facilitated by Celeste Baine, to your location. Celeste Baine is a biomedical engineer, the author of over 20 books on engineering education and careers, and the director of the Engineering Education Service Center based in Eugene, Oregon. She was acknowledged for her outstanding accomplishments in motivating and inspiring students to pursue careers in engineering. Winner of the Norm Augustine Award, Ms. Baine is credited for being an outstanding contributor to the nationwide efforts to increase engineering student enrollment.

The day includes:

  1. All materials needed to engage no more than 40 mother/daughter teams in hands-on engineering activities for the entire workshop. These activities parallel real-world engineering tasks and problem-solving opportunities. Activities are customizable but usually include solving problems, building tabletop hovercrafts, designing towers, helmets or cranes and placing a band-aid on a Whale.
  2. Fabulous prizes.
  3. A UV Bead Jewelry Kit for each girl.
  4. A copy of Ideas in Action for each girl. 
  5. A copy of Teaching Engineering Made Easy for each teacher that attends (up to four).

The Mother/Daughter Technology Engineering Aptitude (TEA) is a one day event that provides middle school girls with a tremendous opportunity to complete hands-on activities and interact with an engineering professional to learn about valuable, high-wage opportunities in the engineering industry. The Mother/ Daughter TEA event was founded to encourage young women to take an interest in pursuing a career in the engineering industry.

The idea for organizing a mother/daughter engineering workshop came from the belief that a supportive environment at home that encourages engineering and technological careers offers young girls an extraordinary opportunity to develop non-traditional interests and aspirations. Mothers were involved to expose them to the kinds of engineering careers that are available and to influence them to encourage their daughters to learn more about engineering.

The engineering industry is facing a severe shortage of skilled young talent. In an attempt to fill open positions and careers, the Mother Daughter TEA event exposes girls to the engineering industry and the skills involved. Local students from the nearby and surrounding communities are invited to participate in this one day event.
