WTS Philadelphia’s Transportation YOU Program held an exciting scavenger hunt throughout Philadelphia on Saturday, April 28. TrYOU Philly challenged their members to explore the city and “collect” photos through a series of challenges and clues, such as:
- Get a photo of your team giving a high five to a uniformed/vested SEPTA employee.
- This is Philadelphia’s newest park.
- The new locations to get your SEPTA fares!
- These circular steel plates cover the access points to our city’s utilities.
- Go here if you want to rent a bike. (Bonus points if you see someone riding one!)
- You can find this city founder, who created Philadelphia’s grid system, standing sky high in Center City.
Members were split into teams and led through the city by their mentors, including Arora’s Donna Guzewski, PE, a Senior Mechanical Engineer. Each team collected their photos by posting them to Instagram using specific accounts and the hashtag #tryouphillyscavengerhunt. It was a beautiful day to explore the city and everyone enjoyed this creative challenge!
Transportation YOU is an interactive mentoring program that introduces young women (ages 13-18) to a number of different careers in transportation. The program strives to motivate those who have an interest in the field and encourage them to pursue courses in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) as the building blocks of a possible career path.
