The program is designed to increase the number of women pursuing degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Desai says she was interested in helping out because she realizes that playing with Legos and other constructive toys builds necessary intuition.

“When it comes to introducing middle-school girls to engineering, even a little bit of information can go a long way,” Desai says.
