The Historic Trust’s Pearson Field Education Center (PFEC) is hosting a Special Open Saturday, Rosie Revere Engineer Day, on February 15, 2020, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the hangar on Pearson Air Field (201A E. Reserve St., Vancouver). Rosie Revere, Engineer is a character who dreams of becoming a great engineer, yet is too shy to reveal her inventions.

Participants will be introduced to the engineering design process as they flow through activities during the event. Each discovery station will introduce a different branch of engineering with a mini engineering challenge. Station activities will be led by volunteer engineering students or professionals in the field. At each station, participants and their families will also have the opportunity to discover a heroine of engineering. The event will also include a reading of Rosie Revere Engineer for younger age groups and opportunities for future engineers to informally network with college students and female engineers.

Director of PFEC, Michelle Marra stated, “Pearson Field Education Center strives to encourage and inspire girls to pursue activities and careers traditionally dominated by men. Rosie Revere is an inventive way to convey an engineering dream to females which they can translate into their own dreams.”

Rosie Revere, Engineer is a bestselling picture book about pursuing one’s passion with persistence and learning to celebrate each failure on the road to achieving one’s dreams.

PFEC recognizes the accomplishments of women engineers and encourages young women through STEM education to consider engineering as a career field. This event is free to attend.
