Description: 

Girls Engineer is a student organization that developed at West High School to support young girls interested in engineering. This groups aims to learn about different facets of engineering and engage in hands-on product development. We have developed a an energy-efficient night light that is powered by LED and requires no plug-in. Not to mention, it is a cool lamp to add to a kids room. We would like to bring our product to market and would like to raise $480 to manufacture our night light.

We want to give girls the opportunity to learn about applicable engineering and make eco-friendly lights that people can use in their home.
