BWI Airport

Very awesome trip last week. The Baltimore chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) took the students who have been participating all year in WTS’s Transportation You mentoring program to the airport!

BWI Airport

Transportation You is all about increasing the number of girls interested in transportation, engineering, and other STEM careers. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) we learned about aviation, the infrastructure of the airport itself, and some of the jobs performed by women in those areas.

Of course, I knew it was going to be a great trip when we walked in and saw all these trusses in the ceiling!

Among many interesting parts of the visit, they took us up to the Operations Control room.
