As part of Engineers Week, this past Saturday Keysight’s Santa Rosa, CA headquarters hosted our annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) event. We’ve been doing these for over 15 years now, and this one was the best yet! 100 girls and young women from 6th through 12th grades gathered for six hours of fun, team-based learning, where the project involved radio transmissions, secret codes, cryptexes, and a competition to discover the name of a famous female engineer.
