Now here's a feelgood story.

Girl power is so underestimated and girl scientists are especially ignored by the science community.

But an all-girl engineering team in the US came up with an innovative solution to keep homeless people safe in winter.

A team of 12 girls from San Fernando High School in partnership with DIY Girls designed solar-powered tents for the homeless, and they can also be packed and folded into a backpack to be easily transported.

DIY Girls is an organisation that offers its support for girls interested in science and technology and builds a sense of community by connecting girls through science projects.

When drafting the plans of the tent, the girls had in mind a few key features, such as lightweight, easily transportable, and has a LED or UV light that can disinfect the tent.

The goal was also to patent the invention and to make sure it gets to as many people in need as it is possible.
