Irving's Girls of Tech have science in their sights
from The Dallas Morning News
Men dug San Xavier mine in another century. They blew the rock apart with chemicals and scraped out copper for wires and machines. In the 1950s, they turned the tunnels into labs to teach the science of the earth to other men. Last summer, four girls walked into the mine, by then part of the University of Arizona. They were about to start their senior years at Singley Academy — an Irving ISD high school in which students are chosen by lottery. Most of them had never been on a plane before, and even visiting a university was a rarity in their families.
