What is Exploring Engineering Day?

Approximately 250 girl and boy scouts in grades three through six spend a half-day on campus exploring what it means to be an engineer.

Each troop or pack attends a minimum of four separate workshops that investigate different engineering disciplines and allow the children to apply engineering skills such as brainstorming, designing and modeling, problem-solving, testing, measuring, refining and working in teams.

Projects vary each year from making “gak” to building bridges to designing toy cars or structures that can protect delicate objects and withstand hard landings.

Students are able to articulate the kinds of skills an engineer must have and the kinds of work that engineers do.
