Columbia Basin College pairs with the Tri-City Development Council is hosting its 4th Annual Girls Learning About Manufacturing event on CBC's campus.
Nearly 140 female high school students from all over the Tri-Cities gather to put their creative minds together.
This year they are focusing on building boots.
Here's where the challenge comes in, the girls are given a mini story, for example, a woman is stuck on the side of a mountain and she needs efficient boots to wear while being rescued, the girls then have to use materials they are given to make that boot.
They are placed into groups of 7 with 2 professional mentors.
One girl expresses the importance of learning how to be self efficient.
The finished products will be displayed in a mini fashion show on Thursday at the Smartmap Expo in Pasco.
