The Air Zoo, has partnered with the Society of Women Engineers to present the 2020 Corporate Engineering Challenge, Saturday, February 15th! Open to girls ages 9-12, this event is designed to introduce young girls to engineering concepts through activities, presentations and talks from female engineers, and collaboration on a challenge team. Thanks to support from corporate sponsors, this event is free to the participants.
The 2020 Corporate Engineering Challenge is comprised of two parts:
- Display stations from sponsors including demonstrations of products and services and an engineering, science, or math activity to complete.
- The Challenge... teams of 6 to 8 girls will complete a technical challenge, competing against opposing teams. What type of challenge? Glad you asked. Last year's was the construction of a moon rover. Participants had to combat the impact of gravity as well as give their rover the ability to explore the moon. Each team is led by a representative of a company sponsor.
