A Family Engineering event creates an informal, fun environment that introduces engineering and engineering careers to elementary-aged children and their parents. It can be a special evening event at a local school, a Saturday event at a neighborhood community center, or even a series of events where families attend three or more sessions over multiple weeks.
Family Engineering: An Activity & Event Planning Guide provides extensive event planning tools and resources to guide you through the process, as well as loads of engineering activities that are easy to facilitate and use simple, inexpensive materials.
