"Let's Do Some Engineering" SWE Event with the YMCA Summer Camp
Friday, July 14th, from 12:00pm to 3:00pm
Oak Grove/Bellemeade Elementary, 2200 Ingram St, Richmond, VA 23224

SWE Richmond is partnering with the YMCA for an engineering outreach event with their summer camp program. Volunteers are needed to facilitate two hands-on engineering activities for Grade 4 campers.

In the "Ship the Chip" activity, students will use household materials to pack a Pringle into a box, then simulate shipping it via a drop test. The team with the most intact chip and the lightest packaging is declared the winner.

In the pollution activity, students will learn a core sampling method to detect a colored drink mix seeping through sand and locate the pollution point source.
