Mother Daughter TEA

It was a great turnout for another annual Mother Daughter TEA (Technology, Engineering, Aptitude) sponsored by the Centers of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Materials Manufacturing (Everett Community College) and the Co E for Marine Manufacturing Technology (Skagit Valley College). This year’s event was held at the Shell Oil Plant, Puget Sound Refinery in Anacortes on Saturday, March 26th! Thanks to Ann Avary, CoE Director, and Kim Davis Tech Prep Director, from Skagit Valley College and the staff from Shell Oil for organizing this year’s  event. Our friend Sam Samano from Workforce Development Council, Snohomish County, was there to participate as well and were we ever glad she did!  She brought joy and laughter along with being a wonderful mentor to the local “Migrant Girls Club”! Our Keynote  guest speaker and Bio-Medical Engineer, Celeste Baine, knows how to engage the girls and their moms and was there to promote careers and pathways in the engineering world that many of them have never considered or been made aware of! Everyone has fun learning about engineers by doing hands on activities that explains and demonstrates that being an engineer is a viable option for all of them! As Sam said, “Makes you want to go to school all over again!”
