Each day we will explore different engineering concepts with sailmobiles, bridge building, and cup towers.

Monday, February 21 - FULLY BOOKED!
Everyday Engineering: SailMobiles
Drop-in 10:00am-2:00pm, Indoors

Is it a car? Is it a sailboat? Design a way to harness the power of wind as you construct a simple vehicle that’s part car, part sailboat! Continue your engineering explorations at home with our take-home activities sheet. National Engineers Week is sponsored in part by Raytheon Technologies.
