Red Wing Republican-Eagle: Girl-powered power tools - Program teaches kids woodworking skills

Ashley Rezachek, July 21, 2019

The smell of sawdust and sound of drills and hammers filled the Makerspace RW room at Minnesota State College Southeast Red Wing campus. A collaboration between several organizations made a girls woodworking workshop possible. The workshop was offered to girls ages 9 to 13 and was the first of its kind in Red Wing. The program -- which ran July 15-18 -- was taught by female instructors. Together the group built two benches that were donated to local elementary schools.

Female prowess was on full display at Red Wing's Minnesota State College Southeast campus this week as a group of area girls participated in a woodworking workshop.
