Would you like to build your own piece of history? Blending historical survey and hands-on learning, this course aims to teach students about the history of women engineers and innovators and their contributions to the field of engineering. From the inception of Bluetooth with Hedy Lamarr to the female codebreakers of World War II, women engineers, scientists, and thinkers have contributed immensely to the field of radio and communication. Students will also get the opportunity to participate in building a foxhole radio that was invented during the duress of World War II with the guidance of instructors. With a few everyday objects such as safety pins and pencil lead, students will create a tool that was integral to communicating with the American public during times of crisis.
