    Nice project, but why does it have to be a nice project for girls? Men and boys can make this as well... Please don't reinforce the stereotype. Women have a had enough for to be engineers or any other occupation remotely near engineering. Give us and everyone a break from shoving people into boxes with expectations of who should be doing this project.

    End of rant.

    Good project, though....
