Making Curriculum Pop

Melissa Saelzer thinks she has found one way to attract more girls into technology careers: fashion.

The 32-year-old Florida resident has started work on a line of clothing embedded with sensors, lights and other components she hopes will get girls curious about how they work.

Saelzer, a systems engineer at Lockheed Martin, said she is excited about jumping into the growing wearable-technology field with her clothing items. 

Saelzer said getting girls interested in STEM is a matter of showing them that it applies to many industries, including fashion.
