Members of the Potomac Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) attended STEM Fair: How Women Work in the Design and Building Industry, an activity of the Washington Architectural Foundation’s Design Like A Girl program on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

Attendees participated in the ASLA-created activity, Create a Landform: Discover How Water Moves on Land. The activity teaches students about landforms, watersheds, and the importance of understanding stormwater management using sculpting clay.

Geared for girls ages 11 to 13, the event was held at the District Architecture Center and introduced more 100 girls to a range of design-related fields—architecture, engineering, construction, urban planning, landscape architecture, and interior design. The program not only introduces girls to architecture, construction, and engineering fields but also provides the opportunity to learn first-hand from successful women in these professions.
