Sandra Garby of Vizinex RFID Engages YWCA TechGYRLS for Manufacturing Month

Sandra Garby, president and co-founder of Vizinex RFID based in Bethlehem, recently explained the basics of RFID (radio frequency identification) tags to a dozen Lincoln Elementary School students who are part of the YWCA Bethlehem TechGYRLS Afterschool STEM program.

Garby’s presentation was in celebration of October being Manufacturing Month. She presented the science of radio frequency identification for products such as medical equipment, movie production rental equipment, warehouse products and more. She used a hands-on demonstration to show how a scanner can read RFID tags, and the girls enjoyed scanning tagged wrenches and other tools through a cardboard box and then reading the content information on a cell phone app. Garby also talked about career opportunities for females in manufacturing and shared her background.

Since 2003, the YWCA Bethlehem has partnered with the Bethlehem Area School District (BASD) to provide exposure to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the TechGYRLS program. For Fall 2019, TechGYRLS is offered at eight BASD schools: Donegan, Freemansburg, Jefferson, Lincoln, Marvine and William Penn Elementary Schools and Broughal and Northeast Middle Schools. TechGYRLS is part of the YWCA Bethlehem’s Girls Empowerment Program and is made possible through the PA Educational Tax Credit (EITC) program and charitable grant support.
