Engineer Some Fun During Engineers Week 2015

February 24-28, 2015

See how much fun science, technology, engineering and mathematics can be during Engineers Week 2015.  Build, create, destroy, explore, design and invent alongside engineers from IBM, Lockheed Martin, Mouser Electronics and other area corporations.

Here are just a few of the STEM-filled experiences planned: 

  • Circuitry Connections: Transform mechanical energy into electrical energy to power different circuits

  • Water Powered Machines:  Tinker with hydraulics as you invent machines that move using water

  • Flight Simulator: Try your hand at flying a Lockheed Martin fighter

  • Technology Take Apart: Take apart simple electronics to reveal interesting insides.

  • Engineer Meet and Greet: Engineers will be in the building from a variety of fields. Ask them your toughest, and most interesting, questions. 

  • KEVA® Competition:  Test your skills in building the tallest, strongest structure

  • Flight Challenge:  Build flying objects and let them rip

  • Digital Trail: Visit the Cattle Raisers Museum to learn how ranchers use technology and engineering to protect their herds
